Description

Seasons book box

We are proud to introduce our new “Seasons book box”! This specially commissioned artwork was created by Danielle Mate Sullivan, an award-winning contemporary Aboriginal artist.

Danielle was inspired by the traditional stories of the Dharawal People as told by Frances Bodkin in her book ‘The Annual Cycle – The Season of Ngoonungi’.

Start your journey on the left side of the box as the Ngoonumgi, the Grey-Headed Flying Fox, gather in vast numbers as the sun sinks below the horizon.

Then we follow the possum footprints to the box’s front panel as the snarling, growling sounds of their nocturnal battles can be heard.

Finally, gentle rains are falling as we move to the right side of the box. Restrictions on eating crabs, yabbies, shellfish, prawns and lobsters are lifted, and feasting on the beaches occurs.

A description of each illustration and its significance is included on the back. You can share this beautiful story with your class.

Our new ‘Seasons’ Book Box is ideal for storing your Indigenous resources, learning about the environment or simply adding some beautiful Australian colour to your classroom or library.
