Sculpture Ceramic Boab | Gerdewoon | by Peggy Griffiths Madij

Gerdewoon - Miriwoong for the iconic Kimberley boab is the inspiration for these unique ceramic objects. For thousands of years an important source of bush tucker, a medicine, a vessel, an engraved object and gift of cultural exchange, these objects translate the east Kimberley artistic tradition of boab engraving into contemporary form.

Designed by Waringarri Senior artist Peggy Griffiths, whose impressive arts practice spans over 35 years. Originally beginning as a boab engraver, her elegant imagery remembers her artistic beginnings and represents the spinifex clusters of her Country while referencing the cultural importance of traditional foods and medicines.
