40,000 years of Aboriginal culture woven into possum skin cloaks by Indigenous elders across southern Australia has been captured in a unique photographic exhibition.
This ancient tradition of etching cultural knowledge and survival facts onto possum skins using ochre and hot pokers to create traditional cloaks was revived a decade ago thanks to the dedication of a group of Aboriginal women.
Photographer Sarah Rhodes has captured the magic of these cloaks and the women who created them in her intriguing exhibition HOME / ON COUNTRY on at the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum until 19 January 2016.
