Scarf Design: Flowers in the Desert by Lauren Doolan
Australian Outback is vast and displays a very harsh climate with extreme temperatures and almost no rainfall. Occasionally, when it rains, this deserted land showcases its prominence with the blossom of beautiful flowers. The Aboriginal people of Australia consider this as a blessing and celebrate the blossom of wildflowers, pods, bush beds at their traditional rituals and corroboree (gatherings).
Aboriginal Women decorate themselves with these Wild Flowers, Daisies, Bush Leaves when they gather for dancing, singing, corroboree, storytelling etc. Some of these wildflowers are considered as a representation of their spiritual ancestors in beautiful appearances. With winds and currents, these wildflowers sing, entertain and relax people of the land with their fragrance and angelic view.
Lauren Doolan comes from Santa Terese of Central Australia. She belongs to the Doolan family and speaks the Arrernte language. Her dreamings mainly involve Wild Desert Flowers, Dancing Spirits, Spirit People etc.
