All about the designers:
Australian Aborigines and Torres Straits Islanders are one of the most successful and longest surviving cultures in the history of mankind. It dates back over 60,000 years during which me it has flourished in a harsh and unforgiving landscape. From the beginning of time, Dreamtime stories have been told to each generation in order to keep the culture alive and to educate the people about their place on earth. Stories are told about the stars, planets, the land, animals, bush tucker, hunting and ancestors (Totemic Spirits), through paintings, carvings, dance and song. Symbols are used on all forms of Aboriginal Art to help tell the stories of their history and culture.

• BUSH FRUIT DREAMING by Doris Nampitjinpa A colourful depiction of the nutrition and tasty Berries and seed pods, available in the countryside after rain. The waterhole at the centre of the picture is full and fresh, providing the essential moisture for the colourful background of desert flowers and plants which bear the bush fruit.
• BUSH TUCKER by Julie Nabangardi Shedden This could jokingly be referred to this painting as an Aboriginal Cookbook. In the centre are three people sitting at their campfire. They have digging sticks and coolamons at their side showing that they are females. They are probably talking of the various foods available in the surrounding lands. The honey ants, small lizards, snakes and witchetty grubs are all shown, along with some bush fruits. The footprints wandering through the paintings show the women as gatherers of these foods.
