Quick Overview

A beautifully natural resource representing Worimi country and Aboriginal culture. Artist, collector and creator Kristy Anderson explains the Coolamon has the following uses; a carrying vessel used to carry fruits, berries, water and shellfish and a digging tool. The Coolamon was also used to carry babies and was sometimes lined with paperbark and other soft materials such as animal fur. The Coolamon is a Woman's tool and plays a very important part in the connection and pride you have in being an Aboriginal woman. Each Coolamon has been hand created with the following meaning as explained by Kristy, the artist. The artwork on the Coolamon represents a meeting and the journey of the knowledge holders. The circles and dots on the outside of the Coolamon represents the knowledge the elders hold. The small thin lines are the tracks left behind from the Elders journey. In the middle of the Coolamon the circles represent a meeting place and around the meeting place sit the Elders, two women with coolamons and two men with spears. Cultural and ethical resources take time to create. As such, we may require your patience as our indigenous creator works to fulfill orders. We appreciate your understanding. Includes a Natural Coolamon, a Stained Coolamon and a Burnt Coolamon. Features handmade by indigenous artist Kristy Andersen. Made of wood. Measures approximately 20cmL.
