Japingka 

Sale price Price $50.00 Regular price Unit price  per 

First Nations people used symbols to indicate  sacred sites , the location of  waterholes and the means to get there, we use them to depict a place where animals inhabit and as a way to illustrate Dreamtime stories.

 

Japingka waterhole was one of the larger desert waterholes used by the Walmajarri people of the Great Sandy Desert. After summer rains came to the desert it would fill up and provide enough water for the animals and the local people to gather  for a short time. 

These pieces have been created to honour and respect the storytelling and cultural knowledge of First Nations People's and should be worn with respect. I want for the wearer to start a journey of thier own personal knowledge seeking of culture and history on the lands they live and work.

 

Pieces made from Blue Gum wood and a translucent green acrylic. All findings are stainless steel.
