Taylor Gale wearing our Women's Dreaming choker, earrings and cuffs.
This artwork was painted by Dorothy Napangardi from The Warlukurlangu Artists Association in Yuendumu, and speaks of women of all ages who travel together to gather 'Ngalyipi', snake vine. This sacred vine is collected for food, used as a tourniquet for headaches and as straps to carry wooden bowls to carry bush tucker. The elders share ancient knowledge and ceremonies with the younger woman as they make this journey.
Emu Dreaming worn by Savanah Watson featuring the artwork by Raymond Walters Japanangka.
In the dreamtime hundreds of emu travelled across the Central Australian region from the Western Desert to the East, many of them perished for lack of food and water. In this story the emu fights the turkey for the bush tucker 'Kujuta' bush tomato, and whilst arguing the emu tried to hit the turkey with his wing and missed, splitting the Kujuta and spreading it to form the landscape around my country, Ngarleyekwerleng.
