When my brother-in-law and sister-in-law came back from their Australia trip these are the two wonderful gifts they gave me. Doesn't this tiny ingot of fine silver with a little splash of gold symbolize Australia perfectly? It's made by artist Paul Allen in Kalbarri, Australia.
Also pictured is a silk scarf with a painting of the Dreaming by Aboriginal artist Maureen Hudson Nampajimpa. Her main stories come from her father -- Fire Dreaming, Water Dreaming and Lightening Dreaming.
The Australian Aboriginal paintings are one of the most mystical forms of art to me and now I have one to wrap around my neck! Thank you blessed travelers :)
