Cotton Tea Towel – Digital Print

This is a teaching painting, describing a dry season in Damien’s homeland, Mount Liebig, in the Northern Territory. It illustrates aspects of landscape and culture that was told to Damien by his great-grandparents. Women sit with children collecting bush potatoes (the red shapes at the top of the painting) and are preparing for inma (ceremony). One man, wati, sits down with his waru (spear). Controlled burnings are taking place as the spinifex is dry, and this means good fruits can grow. The small star-like symbols represent women’s body paint that the women paint on each other for inma. A dry creekbed runs through the painting (in red and white), and there are cracks in the claypans, dried rockholes (tjukula), and sandhills (tali).

Very happy customer!

I will definitely be purchasing more from Welcome To Country. As a white Australian I see too much fake indigenous art and products. Unfortunately many tourists expect they are being sold legitimate items but they aren’t. I love to support the artists directly and this is a great shop to do so. I purchased only 2 items to check the quality, only because I’m a realist too, need to buy products that last. Happy to say both worth every cent I paid!
