Message Sticks Pink Canvas Art Print

Dharrang is a word from Wiradjuri language, meaning message stick.

‘Message sticks’ were used as a traditional way of communication.

Message sticks were transmitted between different communities across the massive landscape of Australia.  Messages communicated may have included announcements of ceremonies, invitations to meetings, corroborees, or marriages.

In many cases, message sticks were objects that granted its carrier a safe passage and entry into the lands of other mobs, and on some occasions, the sticks were burnt after the message was received, to keep some business confidential.

Lost Heaven purchases this artwork from a wholesaler that is committed to investing a stream of ongoing financial support back to our artist community. For every artwork sold, a percentage of the sale price goes directly back to the artist.

 

STRETCHED CANVAS

The stretched canvas fine art prints are professionally printed on polycotton artist canvas, using archival inks and then stretched and gallery wrapped. This means the image is stretched around a 38mm frame to create a seamless, museum quality finish. All stretched and box framed art prints arrive ready to hang.
