Description

They would make great activity packs for threading.  Suitable for school, home activities and appreciation of the designs and symbols of aboriginal art.  Every gum nut is a work of art.

These gum nuts have been wild harvested by indigenous collectors on their homelands.  The gum nuts are then cleaned, trimmed and sorted.  They are put out to dry for around 6 weeks.  After that a threading hole is pierced into each seed (sometimes burnt, sometimes drilled).  The artist then paints each one with a base coat followed by a design.

The designs are inspired by country, depicting landscape, waterholes, flowers, bush foods etc
