Story: Heal Country - Elements
Artist: Luke Mallie
In ancient times, Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islanders observed the sun, moon and stars to navigate the land. A deep understanding was nurtured through a symbiotic relationship with the cycles of nature, meaning our ancestors were able to predict seasonal changes, weather patterns, and be in sync with the native flora and fauna. The Milky Way shines bright with our ancestors and stories. We see the Dark Emu in our sky, which guides our laws and customs. First Australians recognise this science and know that we all have a responsibility to value this knowledge to heal Country and stay true to our treasured land.
While the ancient Greeks believed that there were four elements that everything was made up of Earth, Air, Fire and Water, it is the everlasting presence of spirit that brings strength and beauty in all that is around us. Understanding and believing the fullness of our cultural heritage is guided by the stars above, the land beneath our feet and the spirit all around us. The purity and health of the land and water is vital to sustainability and the healing of our nation. All Australians need to carry in their hearts the significance and value of our ancestors and reflect First Nations peoples cultural knowledge and understanding of Country.

I purchased my shawl just before Christmas and was pleasantly surprised when it arrived less than 24 hours later. I love the colours and the design, and wore it on Christmas Day. Unfortunately when I sat down, and someone sat beside me just on the edge of my shawl, I went to lift my arm to move a little bit and there was a ripping noise. The result is a 2cm tear in the material just adjacent to the sleeve seam. I fear that if I try to mend it, that will just create more pressure on the surrounding material and cause the same thing to happen again. For this reason I am disappointed with my purchase.
Print is gorgeous. Very flattering for the summer
My mother loves these, she is looking forward to wearing them during Naidoc celebrations
My experience was amazing, fast response and great communication throughout the whole process, fit beautifully and fabric is lovely. I would recommend to everyone to buy from Yarn.

“My inspiration for my artwork is my family, my Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and my tropical surroundings. I’m very influenced by pop culture, animation and modern design. I feel that my artwork is my gift to help others see the beauty of Aboriginal culture, appreciate Indigenous issues, and bring joy to people through colourful art and designs”
