Artist: Cedric Varcoe

Story:

When Ngurunderi came down the Murray River in his canoe, chasing the big Murray Cod, he formed he Murray River, Lakes and everything in Ngarrindjeri Country. He also made the Ngarrindjeri People, who live in the River Murray, Lakes and Coorong. He taught everyone the lore, dance, song and everything they needed to survive and live day today.This painting was completed during a developmental workshop with Better World Arts, supported by Arts SA. Cedric experimented with colour and line to evolve his work into a bold and flowing style, saturated with life and passion.

This traditional Kashmiri handicraft vitally supplements an often fluctuating rural income. Wool is custom dyed to match the original artist's image and hand stitched onto a cotton base. Each cushion is backed with natural coloured cotton canvas, and closes with a zip.

Please note this cushion contains an insert by Innergreen's line of recycled PET cushion inserts filled with 100% PET fibre, which is derived from recycled water bottles. They look and feel similar to a high-grade polyester cushion insert, but have a greater resilience rating and will last for much longer. For every 1kg of fibre used, we can save more than 70 water bottles from landfill.
