Aboriginal Design Recycled Mat, Outback Reds
11% OFF RRP $123.95
Authentic Indigenous Sand Goanna design created from recycled products.
The sand goanna is one of the totems significant to the artist's mob, the Kamilaroi people. This mat design represents the knowledges and connections between people and places, that are carried through the goanna. The background of the design shows the tracks of the goanna, with the lines representing the trail that his tail leaves in the sand, and the dots on either side are his footprints as he walks. The design also incorporates campsites of men and women who gather together to share yarns, pass down knowledge and practice culture.
Designed by artist Caitlin Trindall, this piece is a careful collision of both tradition and contemporary art. Caitlin often uses traditional symbols to share messages and stories within the artwork, but also the use of bright vibrant colours to create a modern feel.
"Creating art gives me purpose, it heals my soul and feels my heart with joy. The connections I have developed with people and communities through my artwork is incredible, and it has given me a stronger sense of identity to my people and my culture," says Caitlin.
The Sand Goanna is created using 95% recycled products, that include plastic bags, plastic water bottles and other soft polypropylene so that you can enjoy art and outdoor activities with family and friends in a sustainable way. Take your Sand Goanna to the beach, on picnics or create relaxation spaces in your garden and patio.
