Story: Lappi Lappi Dreaming
Artist: Portia Napanangka Michaels
This artwork is about 'Lappi Lappi' - a rock hole near Lake Hazlett, WA. Lappi Lappi provides a permanent source of water and is surrounded by country rich in bush tucker. In the Dreamtime, mothers with young children would gather at Lappi Lappi because it was a safe place to stay. The rock hole was home to a rainbow serpent that would travel underground between various rocks holes. One day, women were gathered at the rock hole with their children singing and dancing. The rainbow serpent heard the sound of voices so it travelled silently towards them under the water. When it reached the edge of the rockhole it rose out of the water and ate them all.
perfect fit... great design
Fantastic hat love it
No worries! Item as described. Prompt delivery.
It’s a good size and fits both mine and my daughters heads. I now need to buy another one so we stop fighting over who’s going to wear it.
