This fabulous cushion cover is the result of a collaboration combining Aboriginal designs and traditional Kashmiri rug-making techniques.

Using hand dyed wool and chain stitch embroidery, this is a totally handmade piece.

This design is from an original painting by Damien and Yilpi Marks. This is Damien's country, Mt. Liebig, west of Papunya. Damien's great grandfather and his family are travelling through the desert towards Kintore, collecting food. In the bottom right hand corner the sun is setting over a hillside. The family stops to camp at different places along the way. The red concentric circles are dry rockholes, and the blue and white concentric circles represent rockholes that are filled with clean water, that flows on into the creek. The red stripes coming out of the centre of the right hand side of the painting lead to one of these waterholes and these are the tracks of the family walking through the sand. In this painting you can also see spinifex bushes (the yellow star-like symbols), and dry claypans with cracks in the earth.

Being handmade, there maybe minor variations in dye and design.
