The “Emu Spirit Basket,” part of Debbie Wood’s “The NAIDOC Collection,” is a beautifully crafted piece that exemplifies traditional Gomeroi weaving. Made from natural raffia and adorned with emu feathers, this basket is a perfect blend of artistry and cultural significance.

Debbie Wood’s expertise in weaving is evident in the precise and intricate design of this basket. The natural raffia is woven with great care to create a robust and visually appealing structure. The addition of emu feathers enhances the basket’s aesthetic appeal, adding a touch of elegance and a connection to the natural world. These feathers, ethically sourced, symbolize the deep relationship between the Gomeroi people and their environment.
