Sculpture Ceramic Boab | Gwalumbala | by Richard Bloomer

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 artist Richard Bloomer, from his Country of Angalarri, south of Katherine in the Northern Territory. Gwalumbala or the freshwater turtle is his grandfather's Dreaming."My Country is shaped like a turtle. It was created by the turtle in the Dreamtime."
