Helen Price is a Queensland-based Indigenous artist, from Darumbal country. Her Manta Ray design represents a respect for ocean life, with a ray sailing across the sea bed, passing shells and stones, riding the riptides. Price’s art uses the symbols of nature to share stories about our own life’s journeys.
This mat makes a beautiful souvenir of your Australian travels, or floor covering for your camping or fishing trip. The intense blue and black colours will make a big visual impact in an office foyer or become the talking point of your living room or outdoor area.

Manta Ray MatBy: Kaye Hamilton on 1 August 2017My mat is the best purchase I have every made. It looks fabulous in my pergola. My granddaughters love sitting on it when they come to visit. It is so easy to care for, just a light broom and a hose off every now and then.
