Blue Tongue Brown

Dreamtime:

According to the Aboriginal dreamtime story, a man was making a dilly bag (an aboriginal bag made out of string from the kurrajong tree). Suddenly he saw a group of men approaching him. These men were his enemies and wanted to kill him. The man was scared and in order to protect himself, he turned into a blue-tongued lizard called kurrih. The lizard then crawled inside this dilly bag to save itself from the enemies. When he did this, the hard string of the bag stuck on his back and his skin became hard. This was the reason that even today blue tongue lizards have harder skin than other reptiles.

Body Painting 2 Black

Dreamtime:

Aboriginal Culture is in existence for many thousands of years. Aborigines portray their ancient culture and spiritual significance by painting their bodies with designs and motifs. These motifs explain their family group, tribe, dreaming, totems etc. and vary by tribes and country (geographical location).

In the Aboriginal Culture, rituals and ceremonies are a constant source for everyone in the community to gather and celebrate the occasion. While doing so, the artists (dancers) paint their bodies with the theme of the ritual with various motifs and designs. There are strict regulations on how the artists are to paint their bodies based on their tribe and country. They generally paint the ritual designs on their bodies with clay, ochre, pink, red, yellow and white. Some of these rituals last for days. So, they use paints mixed with animal fats so that the paints stay longer.

Anna Pitjara is from Utopia region of Central Australia. She belongs to the Petyarre / Pitjara family and speaks Anmatyerre language. Her dreamings mainly involve Body Painting, Bush Yam, Yam Seeds, Sandhill etc

Dreamtime: Brolga is the name of an amazing dancing bird, which belongs to the crane family. The Brolga’s elaborate dancing performances are partly for their own pleasure and partly a mating ritual. Female brolgas are easily distinguished from their male counterparts by their trumpeting sound while dancing. Aboriginal people have immortalised their graceful steps through dancing. There are numerous Aboriginal legends around this amazing bird.

Brolga was a beautiful girl and was obsessed with dancing. Once a romantic named Shaman, wanted her to be his wife. But brolga refused his proposal straight away. She loved dancing alone -nothing else! Sharman tried to marry Brolga in various ways, but never succeeded. Eventually Sharman convinced the supreme spirit to turn Brolga into smaller shape. Due to this intervention, Brolga became a bird. But, she became an excellent, tireless and elegant dancer, dancing with full devotion, spreading her dance; radiating joy and spontaneity. Her faultless creative expressions have inspired others to learn unique dance ever since.

Nambooka is a well-known designer in the quilting world. Her designs are clear, colourful and very attractive.

Dreamtime:

Brolga is a common wetland bird found in Australia which belongs to Crane family. It is also known as Australian Crane. In the Aboriginal Dreamtime, many people refer Brolga to a beautiful young lady who had an extraordinary dancing skill. People from various lands came just to see her dancing like the wind. Elders from various tribes and communities gathered on this stage and also discuss other communal matters.

Months later, an evil spirit spied Brolga and spun her away while she was practicing her dance. Family and friends of Brolga looked everywhere to find her until she was found on a distant plain while the evil spirit vanished into the sky taking Brolga away. Soon after this, a beautiful bird appeared, stretching its wings and making moves that resembled of Brolga.

This made the people realise that Brolga’s spirit escaped form the evil spirit and turned into a bird (Brolga).

Nambooka is a very skilful and talented artist. She depicted the moves and skill of Brolga in her artwork with her dreaming. Nambooka’s work form M&S Textiles Australia is incredible and value adding to the Aboriginal community.

Bush Medicine 2 Black

Dreamtime:

Aboriginal people of Australia have identified numerous natural remedies for common sicknesses. In every Aboriginal community across Australia, you could find a ‘Medicine Man’ (doctor) and/or a ‘Spiritual Doctor’. While the Spiritual Man heals the ill by identifying the spiritual discord and by performing a traditional ritual to cease the sickness, the Medicine Man offers the right medicinal plant mixed with animal fats, to the person in need. Animal fats aid in dissolving these medicinal herbs inside the body and helps in speedy recovery.

Native herbs are chosen in the process of healing by the Medicine Man. Some of these herbs are easily found but some are seasonal making them hard to acquire. For this and various other reasons, the Medicine Man is also referred to Bush Clinician. A few of these medicinal formulas were also documented. A few of the bush medicines are Sticky hopbush, Beach bean, Mud, Sand etc.
