Desing: Aboriginal Pattern
Material: Mulga Wood
Australian Aboriginal men and women from Ngaanyatjarra lands make their carvings from dry wood, tree roots, mulga wood or river gum. They use the shape of the wood to make models of animals. Some sculptures are plain, while others have patterns and symbols. The sculptures are made sitting near the camp fire while dreaming stories are told. They put a piece of fencing wire into the fire and then when it is hot enough, they burn the designs onto the wood.
Carvings are individually hand crafted & painted with aboriginal art, the artwork varies on each item. No two carvings are the same.
