Description

Cotton Tea Towel – Digital Print – 62.5cm x 42.5cm

This is a very detailed painting which describes a dry time of year in Damiens homeland, Mount Liebig. The painting illustrates aspects of landscape and culture around that area that was told to Damien by his great-grandmother and great- grandfather. There are women sitting with their children collecting bush potatoes (the mass of red shapes at the bottom of the painting). The women are talking and getting ready for a ceremony. There is one man (wati) sitting down with his waru (spear). The spinifex is dry and so the man is walking around making bushfires. He is a good man, he is undertaking controlled burnings so the spinifex burns up and then good fruits can grow after this. There are several symbols in this painting. The small sun-like symbols represent womens body painting  these are the images the women are painting on each other as they sit down ready for inma traditional ceremony. There is a dry creek bed running through the painting (in red and white), and there are cracks in the ground and claypans. There are also dried rockholes (tjukula), and next to them are tali  sandhills.

The journey continues. Empowering Indigenous entrepreneurs & artists.

Fantastic

Going overseas soon and bought a bunch of tea towels as gifts. Amazing designs, lightweight and easy to pack, very useful. Thank you Welcome to Country! I have truly loved every purchase from your company, and there have been many.
