Wear a piece of Australian art jewellery.
These Australian earrings have a piece of Australian aboriginal art photo anodised on them. The artist is Raymond Walters Japanangka whose colourful paintings are based on the Emu Dreaming story.
Lisa Engeman from Occulture produces anodised aluminium and silver jewellery with licensed Aboriginal art and she has created a limited edition jewellery collection using Raymond's colourful paintings. This collection supports Red Dust Role Models which is not-for-profit organisation delivering health promotion programs in partnership with remote communities.
Emu Dreaming is a story of hundreds of emus that travelled across central Australia with many of them perishing on the way. In their search for food, one emu met a turkey and asked if it knew where there was Kujuta, a sweet fruit, but the turkey replied that it only had dry, tasteless bush tucker. However, the emu stayed until the turkey left and went to where it had earlier seen the turkey and found a trench filled with sweet and tasty Kujuta. When the turkey returned and saw the emu, a fight broke out between them and as the emu was trying to hit the turkey with its wing, it scattered the Kujuta around and thus creating and forming the landscape of Ngarleyekwerleng near Mt Allen.
The earrings are 68mm long, 15mm wide and hangs on a sterling silver hook.
