Artist: Holly Sanders: contemporary Aboriginal artist and teacher, Holly Sanders, is a proud Bundjalung woman from the North Coast NSW who is currently based on Yuin Country, South Coast NSW. Through her art, she aims to share her stories, culture and Country in a contemporary way.

Artwork: "Sandhills" 

Meaning: This artwork represents sand hills and Country, symbolising a connection to the land and ocean. The warm natural colours represent the sand, ochre and colours of the Country. This artwork celebrates ocean Country and the importance of sand environments that provided an abundance of wild food and resources to trade and share. The smaller ‘U’ shaped patterns throughout symbolise people, who pass on the knowledge of ocean Country to their jarjums (children). This is an important tradition where sand art, a common art form in coastal areas, is used to create a temporary picture and story and was then washed away by the next high tide.

All descriptions have been written by Holly Sanders.

Sandhills Lanyard

I purchased the Sandhills lanyard for my son’s teacher and sooooooo many other teachers have been complementing the quality and look of it. The story behind the ‘Sandhills’ is a lovely connection to the teacher too. I’d highly recommend getting your hands on one.
