Just another adventure our little womb child has experienced.
I am so thankful for where my work in anthropology has taken me and now I am even more lucky to share it with our beautiful little womb child. Recently spent a week up in the very very remote community on Mornington Island in the Gulf of Australia.
And an adventure wouldn't be complete without some treasure.
I was so lucky to find an iconic headdress which is used in traditional ceremonial dance hiding away at the art centre.
It is this headdress that makes Mornington Island dancers stand out from the crowd and I have spent many years admiring the cultural aesthetics of their traditional dance dress. Made from human hair that is spun into rope, ochre and emu feathers....
This amazing artifact sits proudly in our living room and I eagerly await the day where I can tell my little baby about the journey we shared together.
