BKE Aboriginal Collection - Wall Art - PIPPI
Pippies - Garlaany
This is a food source for Gumbaynggirr people as well as a bait for fishing. The way to collect them is on a beach with feet in the sand and twisting our body to bring them to the surface. We called it “jiving” and we used to do a lot of jiving for pippies when I was a young fulla. I used to watch my Mum and Aunties open them, clean them and cook them in a curry or fritters for us, such a beautiful colour inside and outside of the shell of Garlaany.
Welcome to the beautiful collaboration between local Gumbaynggir Artist Bernard Kelly Edwards and Julie - owner and designer behind Let Them Play Toys.
Bernard Kelly Edwards x Let Them Play Toys is an Indigenous collection, designed to reflect the beautiful symbiotic relationship found within Mother Nature and to connect young minds to the Aboriginal Culture through play.
Each piece is hand-made and sustainably handcrafted from nature alongside local Indigenous Artist Bernard Kelly Edwards on Gumbaynggir country in NSW Australia.
