FISH NET

This design by Kieren Karritpul depicts fish net traditionally used by the old women for collecting and catching fish and turtles from the billabongs and small creeks. The fish net is hand woven by the women from merrepen (sand palm) which is dyed in many colours from the roots, leaves and berries which the ladies collect, then hand spun into string. The fish net can take a long time to weave, making it a vital tool in supplying food and a treasured possession in generations past.
