Art work Description:
Much of local life for Helen’s people revolves around the sea. Her family’s house at Bulgul, Northern Territory, Australia is about 15 metres from the beach. An important part of local life is fishing and crabbing and seafood forms the fundamental protein base for Helen’s people. Traditionally, fishing nets have been made using the spine of a matapan palm. The inner fronds of the palm are pulled out, the stem broken at the top and the spine removed. These strands are then rolled on the thigh to form the strings for the net. The strings are then bound together to form a complete net.
