    I just love the use of Ghania Aspera seeds (the little red ones) as decoration on the Xanthorea resin. I've ground these seeds up in the past to make 'cakes', but had never thought about using them for decoration on pieces. Awesome!!

    Hunter, you see how this stuff interests you because it is new to you, well I feel the same way about most of the stuff you guys do. Can we all just chill, and share info? I'm NOT having 'a sad day out bush' mate, far from it.

    I thought I'd post this image here, because I find this P&G circa 1880's Tatanua mask a little amusing. I think this one is in a U.S collection (I may be wrong). I love the incorporation of the white mans clothes brush as part of the mask.

    The first group were spectacular. I've always thought that fishing weirs were really under rated but I have never seen stone traps like those.

    Those are some really incredible photos....the conical wicker things are fish traps? I'd love to know what the rest of the stuff is for.

    This is another piece you may like. It's a bamboo club, tipped with rows of sharks teeth, tied on with cordage. Used as a weapon and also in cermonies.

    our very own star, DEADLY.


    if you do visit, do Circular Quay, The Rocks, The Botanic garden, then walk up to the Museum. There's also the Museum of Fine Art, at the back of the Gardens. (last time I went they had a bit of Aboriginal stuff on the bottom level).

    All within walking distance.

    It's probably just a cultural language thing, but Hunter63 asked you almost the exact same thing as tundrabadger - your response was a wee bit different though.

    As I said - probably a cultural language thing - just want to make you aware.

    No mind games being played. Early on you made the comment that went something like......If I'm being a wanker let me know......well, now you know.
