boab-and-barkOur friends Richard and Marika visited the Kimberley last month and brought back this beautifully carved Boab nut by Bob Charles from Fitzroy Crossing
boab-and-bark-fish-detailI tied the nut with a piece of hand twined string from  the String Theory  exhibition at the MCA (which is on for one more week til the 27th) to this bark painting representing food gathering by Wululu in Central Arnhem Land  from 1976
boab-bark-and-eagle-feather& tied the other piece of hand made string from String Theory to the eagle feather my friend Eliene gave me earlier this year.
If life is as long as a piece of string then I might as well embellish it!
Saying that I tried tying a few other bits & pieces to these handmade strings this morning but they didn’t want or need embellishment. they hold strong magic & demand great respect.

NB the bee drawing and gold leaf brooch are by Bronwyn Berman
the bee print is by Mark Rowney
sun mirror in the fireplace is by Olga Cironis
The Drover on Softly Softly by Greg Hyde

    I like your eclecticism. Some people (moi!) just have untidy stacks of stuff…

    What a great gift! And given to one who not only really appreciates it but turns it into a beautiful installation! You have the knack, Mo!

    the detail on this piece is amazing, so intricate and I love how you have created an ”installation” which compliments the piece so beautifully…
