Tobwabba Art tells the story of Worimi people from the Great Lakes region of coastal New South Wales. It is a living portrayal of the rich and diverse culture of the Worimi people that has been passed down through the generations.
The depiction on the lid of this jewel box features a large central circle which represents the kangaroo’s main campsite. The brown and yellow dotted lines connecting the smaller circles are the trails that the kangaroo uses to move to and from his feeding and drinking places. The large brown footprints show the Aboriginal hunter that this is a kangaroo area. The x ray art style is used to portray the parts of the kangaroo that can be used.
