AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL ARTIST: NATASHA STUART
PALETTE: Multicoloured on red
THE DESIGN: In Central Australia, the wild fig grows naturally over a large area. The fig is edible when eaten raw and has a slight sweet taste. Dried figs are ground into paste to eat.
Aboriginal people arrived on the Australian continent at least 50,000 years ago. They found ways of surviving that reveal an extensive and detailed knowledge of their environment. Their understanding of native plants goes far beyond just knowing what is edible. For Survival and hunting they invented weapons and tools. Many of these things were unknown until recently. Even towards the end of last century it was hard to find a 'bush tucker' restaurant in Australia. Now there are a number of restaurants that offer bush tucker on their menu.
Natasha skilfully shows through her artwork how the wild fig may be used in combination with other traditional foods including kangaroo, emu, platypus, fish and echidna.
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.
