Ngarrindjeri weaving rushes (Cyperus sp.), 35x34x15cm

I describe myself as a Ngarrindjeri Cultural Weaver. My work represents who I am, my culture, traditions and beliefs and where I come from. The basket I made is a food gathering basket, and my weaving pieces always strengthen and sustain my traditional weaving practice. My thoughts go back to my old people, especially when I make my baskets and mats, of how they made their survival items.
