The Jabiru and the Kookaburra



The Jabiru and the Kookaburra is a true piece of wall art.  Indeed, Aboriginal art is usually quite colourful, and this is no exception.  The fabric designer, Chern’ee Sutton, is an award winning, modern indigenous artist from the Kalkadoon people around the Mount Isa area in Queensland.  This design represents “the grace and beauty of the Jabiru and how he performs a special dance for his one true love. The other birds watch in admiration of this special dance, all except the jealous kookaburra who laughs in the distance”.  (Look very closely to find him!)

This fabric copy of Aboriginal art by Chern’ee Sutton makes an impressive wall hanging.  Without doubt, this colourful quilted piece will be a focal point in any room of the house.  The flowing quilting design in sterling silver thread takes its clue from the artwork itself.  Specifically, it gives the feeling of motion to the dance of the Jabiru.  In addition, the colourful flecks on black in the 100% cotton backing and binding fabric marry perfectly with the print.

The 80% cotton/20% polyester wadding gives this wall hanging a sturdy feel and allows it to lie flat against the wall.  Moreover, the hanging corners on the back allow for easy hanging with a dowel (not included).  Read RBQ’s post on hanging corners for more information.

The Jabiru and the Kookaburra wall hanging measures 85 cm wide by 109 cm high.  Machine washable and tumble dryer safe.
