Artist Name: Marlene Doolan

Dreamtime:

This is a beautiful handmade Australian Made Apron. This apron features a beautiful aboriginal design of Seven Sisters by Marlene Doolan.

Australian Aboriginal people tell several stories about seven sisters from the Dreaming Time which is the time of the creation of the universe by their ancestors. This story of seven sisters originated from the culture of stars in the Taurus constellation.

There were seven sisters who were all beautiful and elegant. Every man who saw them wished to marry one of the sisters. One day the sisters went into the bush with their digging sticks to gather food including wood ants, witchetty grubs and honey ants. After a successful expedition, they sat down to enjoy a feast, never imagining that a lonely warrior named Warrumma was hiding close by, watching them. While the sisters were eating, Warrumma took away two of the digging sticks and hid them. All the sisters looked for the two lost sticks in vain but eventually the five sisters who still had their digging sticks sadly left without the two sisters whose sticks had been taken.

Clever Warrumma came out of hiding and firmly grabbed the two sisters by their waists. He promised the girls that he would take good care of them and would marry them. The two girls decided that they would pretend to agree to Warrumma’s plan while looking out for the opportunity to escape. One day they were asked to cut pine bark to make a fire. As soon as the girls climbed the pine trees, those trees started to grow right up to the sky. Warrumma shouted in vain for the girls to come down. But they kept climbing and were soon warmly welcomed to the sky by the five sisters anxiously waiting for them, If you observe constellations carefully you may see the two freed girls as they arrive at their sisters’ camp in the sky.

Artist Marlene Doolan is from Santa Teresa in the Northern Territory. In her painting, she depicts luminous heavenly bodies suspended in the desert night sky. The Milky Way is represented as clouds of dots of different sizes and major stars are represented as a large dots surrounded by circles.

    Numerous businesses market Aboriginal designed creations. Warrina Designs is distinguished by its exceptionally well curated selections and outstanding customer service. Products they offer under each category–art, fabric, carpets, scarves, ties, table runners, hats–feature the best of the best, which makes shopping easy at affordable price points. I needed gifts for an engaged couple in time for their wedding, and found the perfect set. I also expressed my sincere hopes and best wishes for the bride and groom. The thoughtful people at Warrina Designs transformed my comments into a beautiful card. They then upgraded the shipping I chose from standard delivery to express to insure that the present arrived on time–free of charge! The unexpected attention their staff paid to details such as these, place them in the top tier of businesses, since they think of ways to enhance the quality of the customer’s experience. Beautiful selections, thoughtful staff, exceptional service: a rare combination in today’s business world. Thank you!

    I have purchased a 10×10 inch fabric pack (40 pieces), two 5×5 inch packs (242 pieces in total) and three fabric packs. The designs are beautiful – bright and striking. The fabric itself is of fantastic quality, and feels amazing. I will definitely be coming back if I am working on any other designs requiring aboriginal prints.

    Fabric was of very good quality – print was excellent – I was a little surprised at the smaller size of the panel – a bit hard to reconcile actual numbers to reality – but all in all happy with the panel.
