Coastal middens floor mat
A beautiful, Aboriginal mat featuring the artwork “Coastal Middens” by Wiradjuri artist Billyara. This Aboriginal mat measures 200cm x 100cm and features a polyester surface and a non-slip
rubber backing. Billyara explains his inspiration for this artwork as follows: “The Coastline provides an abundance of fresh food, fish were once caught in hand made nets. Our people would walk in
sequence out into the depths of the water and throw the netting into schools of fish. The catch of fish would be shared amongst the tribe along with the fresh shellfish that was collected along the
shorelines and amongst the reefs. Middens were piles of the remaining shells and bones of fish that were placed in a certain area by the people of the tribe. This was a seasonal hunting and
gathering activity and here on the Central Coast, middens can still be found as far as up in the mountains near the rock caves. These midden sites are classed as special sites as few have survived or
have been covered over time. These show what food was once found in an area by Aboriginal people and the patterns of tribes that have almost been forgotten.”

Songline Indigenous cushions
A set of 3 Aboriginal cushions featuring artworks from Wiradjuri artist Billyara.
Billyara describes this series as “The Songline series is a series of paintings that shows our connection to everything. Songlines are our education, they teach us about things like bush tucker,
country and animal tracks and ceremonies.” These Aboriginal cushions feature removable, polyester velvet covers and thickly padded inserts. pillows measure 50cm. Billyara explains his
inspiration for the Bush Tucker cushion as follows “As seasons change the variety of bush tucker available across the land also changes. The summer months bring a burst of citrus fruits, finger
limes, bush passionfruit and bush tomatoes. The warmer months also bring grass fires where their seeds would be spread and the land regenerated.” He describes the Country and Animal Tracks
painting as follows “The red earth across the land has imprints of animal tracks which shows hunters which way they travel. Often leading to water holes, groups of men would follow certain signs
that would lead them to their catch. Young boys would learn from an early age how to make the tools and weapons needed to be able to provide for their tribe. They would also learn from the elders
how to hunt certain animals and this is passed down once they become men. Billyara describes the Ceremonies painting as “Ceremonial grounds are distinctive areas where certain ceremonies take
place. Women and men have different sites for their business and the tribe also has common grounds for group ceremonies. Certain landscapes feature and rock art, carved trees and rocks with
symbols show these areas and each member of the tribe and visitors to that country could be warned about the area and if it was appropriate to visit.”
