Title: Grass Seed Pendant Necklace

Artist: Barbara Weir
This gorgeous pendant necklace depicts Grass Seeds by the Aboriginal artist Barbara Weir from Utopia in central Australia.
Barbara paints the grass in all colours of its life cycle, from bright green after rain, the red of bush fires, and the grey and black after fires. The seeds of merne ntange ulyawe were an important food source for the Aboriginal people of this region, often ground up and made into cakes and damper.
