Sumba is an island in eastern Indonesia that is famous for its indigenous culture and art, unique from other areas of Indonesia. Among the common symbols seen in Sumbanese art is the “Mamuli”, usually found as amulets and motifs on handwoven textiles. Its shape is associated with the female reproductive organ and equates to fertility and honoring the women of the tribe.
