    "Because of Her, we can” – NAIDOC 2018 is a tribute to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women who have played and continue to play crucial roles in the lives of the nation. The aim of promoting this theme is to shine a light on the never-ending role that strong Indigenous women serve. The design is based on a 100% authentic, hand-painted artwork created by Glen Mackie (Kei Kalak) Torres Strait Islander artist (Iama/Yam Island).“Love Of Culture pays homage to women and represents the livelihood and sacred labour of Torres Strait Islander women, often carried out in a group. Featuring unique elements like hair comb, bridal pendant and frangipani flowers with individual meanings, but as a whole, this drawing tells an important story about Torres Strait Islander women. [sf_modal header="Glen Mackie (Kei Kalak) artist" link_type="text" link_text="  Learn more about Glenn →  " btn_colour="black" btn_type="rounded" btn_size="standard" btn_icon="ss-star" btn_text=""] The bold minar, or infill-design style in Glen Mackie (Kei Kalak)’s work incorporates family totemic designs and his own invented geometric repeating water pattern.

    •  The hair comb and Island mat represent the important bonds between the women. •  The bridal pendant is made from the shell from the Hawksbill Turtle by the groom and is the equivalent of a wedding ring. •  The garden stick and yam represent the time when women study the Tagai constellation in the sky at night to determine the best time to plant yam in time for the first rainy season. •  It is the job of the younger girls to always ensure the coconut water container is always kept full for the men to take with them when they go out in their boats to hunt for turtle and dugong. If the hunt is not successful, the women dig up the yam and taro from the garden and cook it ready to eat on the men’s return. The garden food is a staple and a back-up. •  The coconut scraper is used for scraping the white flesh from coconuts which the women use to make coconut milk and coconut oil for cooking and many other uses (eg hair treatments). •  The three frangipani flowers signify marriage, widowhood, being single. Depending on where the flower is placed on the head, it has different meanings: •  In the middle or back of head: a widow •  On the right: a single woman •  On the left: a married woman [/sf_modal]

    Love Of Culture formal set

    , , , , ,
    Whether you’re attending a business meeting or heading to a wedding, be sure to look to Lifewear’s unique range of formal accessories featuring remarkable, 100% authentic Indigenous designs.
    "Because of Her, we can” – NAIDOC 2018 is a tribute to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women who have played and continue to play crucial roles in the lives of the nation. The aim of promoting this theme is to shine a light on the never-ending role that strong Indigenous women serve.
    The design is based on a 100% authentic, hand-painted artwork created by Glen Mackie (Kei Kalak) Torres Strait Islander artist (Iama/Yam Island).“Love Of Culture pays homage to women and represents the livelihood and sacred labour of Torres Strait Islander women, often carried out in a group. Featuring unique elements like hair comb, bridal pendant and frangipani flowers with individual meanings, but as a whole, this drawing tells an important story about Torres Strait Islander women. [sf_modal header="Glen Mackie (Kei Kalak) artist" link_type="text" link_text="  Learn more about Glenn →
     " btn_colour="black" btn_type="rounded" btn_size="standard" btn_icon="ss-star" btn_text=""] The bold minar, or infill-design style in Glen Mackie (Kei Kalak)’s work incorporates family totemic designs and his own invented geometric repeating water pattern. He retells the myths and legendary stories he inherited from older family members. As one of Yam Island’s few practising artist he feels he has a responsibility to keep alive the sacred stories of the four brothers who traveled from the north before memory and settled Zenadh Kes, more commonly known as the Central and eastern Torres Strait Islands.

    •  The hair comb and Island mat represent the important bonds between the women. •  The bridal pendant is made from the shell from the Hawksbill Turtle by the groom and is the equivalent of a wedding ring. •  The garden stick and yam represent the time when women study the Tagai constellation in the sky at night to determine the best time to plant yam in time for the first rainy season. •  It is the job of the younger girls to always ensure the coconut water container is always kept full for the men to take with them when they go out in their boats to hunt for turtle and dugong. If the hunt is not successful, the women dig up the yam and taro from the garden and cook it ready to eat on the men’s return. The garden food is a staple and a back-up. •  The coconut scraper is used for scraping the white flesh from coconuts which the women use to make coconut milk and coconut oil for cooking and many other uses (eg hair treatments). •  The three frangipani flowers signify marriage, widowhood, being single. Depending on where the flower is placed on the head, it has different meanings: •  In the middle or back of head: a widow •  On the right: a single woman •  On the left: a married woman [/sf_modal]
