Limited edition rug # /100

61 x 91cm

Kurun Warun is a Gunditjmara man who is also a descendant of Truganini, the sadly last indigenous Tasmanian queen. The original painting shows the fire stick plant. It’s long stem and fibrous top end made it perfect for hand made fire, an important technology to Aboriginal people living the traditional life.

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