CUSHION cover 'Yam and Bush Tomato Dreaming' design by Paddy Stewart

60.00

This original painting shows the Yam and Bush Tomato Dreamings. You can see the Yams and the small round berries of the Bush Tomatoes. The place associated with this Dreaming is west of Yuendumu. In the Dreamtine the people used to eat these fruits and vegetables, just as our old people lived off them. What I have painted here is the Dreamtime Yams and Bush Tomatoes. I painted them here for the children to see.

Hand dyed, chain stitched wool finished with a heavy cotton backing. This cushion cover is born of a cross cultural collaboration between Aboriginal artists and traditional Kashmiri weavers through Better World Arts, certified 'Fair Traders of Australia'.

Purchase of this cushion cover directly benefits the artists and and their communities, control and ownership of intellectual property are also maintained.
