MANUFACTURER: M & S Textiles Australia
AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL ARTIST: BARBARA EGAN was born on the banks of the Murray River and later moved to Robinvale with her father. In recent times Barbara has focused her art practice on her connection to Robinvale and the river surrounds. Her artworks are shown in various art galleries and in private collections.
THE DESIGN: Aboriginal people are regarded as the 'land owners' of Australia, and they consider the land to be more than just a 'place'. They respect every mountain, river, waterhole, tree, animal, etc. They believe that their Aboriginal ancestors are the creators of all the land and objects that are essential to their day-to-day life.
Traditional Aboriginal laws involve bush food, sea food, wild life, hunting, etc. Yet the Aboriginal people honour their ancestral lands and the teachings of their ancestors and never hoard food or spoil the nature of their environment.
Many Aboriginal ceremonial rituals are conducted on the bank of a river where people gather and perform dances, story-telling, and other sacred rituals.
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.
