MANUFACTURER: M & S Textiles Australia
AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL ARTIST: AUDREY MARTIN NAPANANGKA is a Warlpiri woman born in Yuendumu Community, approximately 3 hours North West of Alice Springs in Central Australia. She is a well respected senior artist and commenced painting in 1986. Audrey often paints 'bush tucker' (native food) Dreaming. Many of these foods are seasonal and the traditional knowledge of how and when to search for these foods has been passed down through the generations.
PALETTE: Black, White, earth pink, light yellow ochre, grey, brownish green, natural on dark brown
THE DESIGN: The Honey Ant is found in central Australia in the Alice Springs area and is considered to be a 'bush tucker' delicacy. The ants construct nests in the red flat sandy soil under a tree or bush with the entrance camouflaged amongst dead litter. The Aboriginal women begin digging about a half metre from the entrance working around to locate the side chambers where the storer ants hide. Once collected, honey is sucked from the storer ants' extended abdomens.
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.
