Ghost Net



Price includes postage anywhere in Aus.

Crocodiles are a big totem for our people. That means he owns all this country including all the people and animals that live here. They can grow to large size and sometimes attack people or dogs. We have to be very careful when around water where they live especially with children. Our old people used to harvest crocodile eggs for food. Sometimes we still gather them but need to be very careful. Our old people were crocodile sorcerers and had them as pets. These crocodiles would hunt food like wallaby and Barra and drop it at their feet. A sorcerer could ride on the back of their crocs to cross a river. Now there are no such men left.

Pormpuraaw Art & Culture Centre Incorporated

Pormpuraaw Art & Culture Centre Incorporated was formed in 2009. Pormpuraaw is a beautiful place located in Cape York Peninsula on the gulf of Carpentaria. We are rich in language speakers, culture and talented artists. We are most known for our print making, painting and sculptures made from recycled ghost nets. Ghost Net is the term we use for illegally abandoned fishing nets by commercial fishing boats. These nets drift on ocean currents and continue to kill marine life for no reason. We also publish important cultural manuscripts and film making in language. We have exhibited nationally and internationally. Our work has been collected by many important collections and institutions. http://Pormpuraaw Art & Culture (fcp1)-H.264
