The story behind the design…
We could jokingly refer to this painting as an Aboriginal Cook Book. In the centre are three people sitting at their campfire. They have digging sticks and coolamons at their side showing that they are females. They are probably talking about the various foods available in the surrounding lands. The honey ants, small lizards, snakes and witchery grubs are all shown, along with some bush fruit. The footprints wandering through the painting show the women as gatherers of these foods. The original painting is circular in form.
This product is Made in Australia.
