Artwork Story

This print depicts a coolomon made from the bark of the paper bark tree. In the olden days people used to cut pieces of this bark with a stone axe, then shape it into a tray. This paper bark tray would be used to gather collected plants and game. The artist’s design was inspired by the structure of the flaky, stringy bark of the coolomon.
