AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL ARTIST: Agnes Rubuntja is a skilled Aboriginal designer. She learnt much of the artwork from her father, who was a talented artist as well as a respected community leader.
Colour combinations of the petals and flowers are excellent.
When she was young, Agnes used to collect bush foods (tuckers). She travelled around the nearby countryside (bush) and waterholes where she swam and also collected bush tucker. She was always interested in painting and worked hard to become an accomplished artist. In this artwork, Agnes has beautifully highlighted the water. The dots resemble waterholes and the lines in between them resemble snakes. Snakes are guarding the water in the waterholes so that no one can spoil or steal the water. Aboriginal people respect the snakes and talk to them regarding their requirement for water. There is a connection between guardian snakes and people.
Aboriginal people of Australia have inhabited the land for no less than 60,000 years. They have created and manage a sustainable culture. 'Dreamtime' is the aboriginal understanding of the World, of its creation and of its creation stories.
DISCLAIMER: One of the drawbacks of buying fabric online is that in spite of every effort made by the Seller to provide a photo that represents the true colour of the item, it is impossible to do so, as the colour appears differently on every computer screen. Therefore the item you receive may be a slightly different shade to what appears on your computer screen.
SHIPPING: No online postage calculator is sophisticated enough to accurately compute postage based on both fabric value and weight. You are always welcome to ask us for a postage quote for multiple purchases. Should our automated postage calculator charge you more than 'actual' postage and you have already paid, we will immediately refund the overage.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING delivery times vary depending on the destination, Customs, and local postal service. Orders usually arrive in 10 -21 days although this can extend to 30+ days for Canadian deliveries. Peak period delivery times can delay delivery, especially in the lead up to Christmas.
CUSTOMS DUTY: If you are buying from outside of Australia, it is possible that you may be charged Customs Duty or other charges before your order will be released to you. We are in no way accountable for customs duty, handling fees or taxes that a Buyer may be required to pay upon delivery. We recommend that Buyers check with the appropriate authority in their country before they buy.
RETURNS/EXCHANGES: Whilst every effort is made to accurately process your order, mistakes can occasionally be made.
