ABOUT THE ARTIST: Denise Doolan is from the Santa Theresa region of Central Australia.
THE DESIGN: According to Australian Aboriginal mythology, before the time of creation there was nothing in the universe. There was no light...there were no humans or animals...there were no trees or any vegetation. One day when the soil was soft the Aboriginal spirit people sprung up from beneath the soil and decided to create all things necessary for their future generations. The spirit people began creating paths, trees and gardens, creeks, rivers, animals and man.
When the spirit people gathered together for their evening rest, and discussed their new creations, made rules for the future generations in order to maintain social order and instil respect for the elders who were responsible for maintaining peace in the community. When they were gathered at these meetings, they left two rainbow snakes in charge of guarding their newly created world.
Denise has meticulously created a design that shows the spirit people as they dance and meet with others, and also shows the meeting place, walking paths, and men and women walking in peace and harmony.
Carbon dating has found that traditional Australian Aboriginal art found on rocks and in caves dates back 50,000 years.
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.
