Boab nuts

“I did this design about the boab nuts that I used to see my two uncles carve and sell to tourists in Wyndham. Since I was a small girl I used to watch them carve. All around the Kimberley you can find people doing boab nut carving.

We tell stories on the boab nut; boabs are special, they only grow in the Kimberley. In my design, I’ve done the animals that we eat, that we hunt for out in the bush: like barramundi, bream, goanna. Then there's the snake; the dreaming that creates the rivers and the waterholes.”
