This is a very special rug design, in collaboration with 'Cungelella Art'

"The title of this piece is kalkatungu country. We paint our traditional homelands heavily focusing on the landscape because it is very special to

us, this country is where our father and our mother call home, we were raised here

and its where we are raising our children also. I remember as a child always being surrounded by Aunties and uncles and now reliving fond memories of our numerous bush trips piled into the back of our 11 seater troop carrier, camped under the stars, eating bush tucker, and listening to family sing around the camp fire. This country is very rough and rugged, the heat has twisted and folded back on itself and the ochres have been pushed up from the

depths with gold and silver and many other minerals which gives us the most unique mineral belt in the world. The peach covered skies mixed with the blues pinks and purples, paints us the well known kalkadoon sunsets. 

The harsh Spinifex that covers the hillsides, the ghost gums that flourish among the intense red dirt where our Kalkadoon Warriors quarried famous green stone axes that were traded from the gulf to Adelaide to the west coast and the Daintree forest. 

On my mothers side of the family we have connections to sand-over river in central Australia NT where our great great grandmother Myrrdah was born. Our father who

is a strong kalkadoon man and being the first chairman of the kalkadoon nation lead the fight to win native title rights for the kalkadoon people. We draw inspiration from these connections and vivid memories in our lives which also allows us to use traditional shapes and symbols and an unrestricted palette to develop a modern contemporary interpretation of our traditional culture."
