Debbie Wood’s skillful weaving transforms simple materials into a work of art, where each strand of raffia is carefully intertwined to form a sturdy and aesthetically pleasing structure. The addition of emu feathers adds a delicate, ethereal quality to the basket, symbolizing the close relationship between the Gomeroi people and the natural world. These feathers, ethically sourced, highlight the importance of sustainability and respect for wildlife in First Nations cultures.
