This artwork is a celebration of our First Nations Peoples who have thrived and lived sustainably with the land we call Australia for more than 60,000 years. We have been here since time began and we are the oldest and longest continuing culture on the planet. Where other civilisations have been and gone, we are still here, and we continue to maintain the world's oldest culture. It is one of our nation's greatest assets.
The connecting meeting place symbols in the centre represent the relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and our Country. Our relationship with Country is sacred, and is interconnected with our culture, family and kinship, traditions, songlines, languages, and physical,spiritual and emotional wellbeing.
The lines and detailed patterns across the artwork symbolise our songlines and an aerial view of Country. Country is central to our culture. It is our mother, is steeped in our culture, and gives us our identity and sense of belonging. To have survived from the times of our mega fauna and great land mass changes, we learned and gained the living skills within our natural environment to still be here today.
The dotted travel lines and symbols surrounding the meeting place symbols represents our ancestors. We are the ancient people of this land - we respect and listen to the land, our elders and the ancient spirits - our ancestors have walked this country for millennia and continue to live on in the land, water and the sky. Stories and ancestors are embedded in our country to make sure we look after our mother earth.
This artwork represents us respecting and caring for this land, protecting our First Nations songlines, cultures, languages and ceremonies. Honouring this reciprocal relationship with the land is central to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and is a concept important for all people living in Australia today.

I love the look and feel of the Rainforest Warrior Blouse. The print is absolutely gorgeous!
I feel great wearing this Blouse. It's stylish and mesmerising.
I ordered a size 18. Is a flowy synthetic fabric that does not need ironing (awesome) similar to the material some business scarves and suit jackets are made from. Semi sheer (see through) which I personally like. No noticeable issues I often get e.g. itchiness or tight areas in arms and waistline. Was not too tight or too loose, a comfortable and forgiving fit. Long line hem for tall ones means it can be worn with leggings or low waisted pants easily, and bent over in without flashing. Gorgeous colours, true to picture. Looks great with tanned and darker skin, and mauve pants for some reason. Very aesthetically pleasing and the artists work is very meaningful; teaching us about sustainability and connection to land and sea. Great conversation starter in the classroom. One con- The sleeves are about an inch too long, so I roll them up. I'm about 5'6 so if you also have shorter arms, be aware of this issue. I love this shirt, and everyone comments how nice it is because it just shows an artwork, no logos or interruptions on the fabric. Just a beautiful and stylish garment. Would buy one in every print if I could! Ngalingah Jagun is the nicest in my opinion.
I am very happy with the purchase. Had bought one previously for my daughter & liked it so much I decided I wanted one too. Very comfy.
Feels lovely when being worn. Easy to wash.
