I can't remember which tribe this carved rattle came from but Jarred's dad got it for Canyon as a baby and now Lakes is loving it as a teething toy 💙 #firstnations #indiginousart #nativeamerican

Touch what resonates deeply within you. Touch what is ancient and real. There is no need to search beyond your own DNA for the answers.... for your wisdom lies within.

Artesãs e artistas indígenas utilizam matérias-primas diversas, seja de origem animal ou vegetal, para a confecção de seus artefatos e utensílios. Entre todas, uma desperta especial interesse e curiosidade, por sua origem manufaturada e poder de sedução: as preciosas miçangas de vidro.
Incorporadas nas principais manifestações estéticas e rituais de vários grupos indígenas, as miçangas são apreciadas por sua diversidade de cores, tamanho, formas, qualidades de brilho e durabilidade.
Se as miçangas foram apropriadas pelos povos indígenas desde os primeiros contatos com os viajantes, vemos que hoje ela retorna para o mundo do branco, na moda e no design. As miçangas tecem caminhos entre mundos e através delas podemos pensar a relação entre os mais diferentes povos.

You know there are great artists who have not been introduced to the world. They sit in the corner of their small house in their village and make great pieces of art . Art lovers will never know they exist because of politics! Because of statemen! and because of money!
We have faced all the obstacles on our way because we are from Iran and because of sanctions. But we passed them!. There are still a few steps to take and we will be done! Yes "we are from Iran" , we do not care about politics because we have more important things to do. For the first time after many years ,we are the only ones who introduce Iranian unique and unknown art to the world! Nothing can stop us even the scary beast of politics!


Stunning sand sculpture in the grounds at Monte on my way to teach the gals some yoga. I guess it's Cammeraygal: the "indigenous Australian mob united by a common language, strong ties of kinship and survived as skilled hunter–fisher–gatherers in family groups or clans that inhabited the Lower North Shore of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia."

Wool fibres are crimped, and when tightly packed together, form millions of tiny pockets of air. This unique structure allows it to absorb and release moisture—either in the atmosphere or perspiration from the wearer—without compromising its thermal efficiency. Wool has a large capacity to absorb moisture vapour (up to 30 per cent of its own weight) next to the skin, making it extremely breathable.

Wool is a hygroscopic fibre. As the humidity of the surrounding air rises and falls, the fibre absorbs and releases water vapour. Heat is generated and retained during the absorption phase, which makes wool a natural insulator. Used in the home, wool insulation helps to reduce energy costs and prevents the loss of energy to the external environment,
thus reducing carbon emissions 👍

At the end of its useful life, wool can be returned to the soil, where it decomposes, releasing valuable nutrients into the ground. When a natural wool fibre is disposed of in soil, it takes a very short time to break down, whereas most synthetics are extremely slow to degrade ❤️🐑❤️

Why Wool? It's renewable ❤️🐑❤️

As I feel the full moon rise into my evening, I drift back into the past week spent immersed in the oceans, land and people of the Torres Straight Islands. How blessed and deeply honoured I feel to be offered such insight into this ancient and powerful culture. I still struggle to find the words to translate this sacred place in the world, perhaps I never will, but I do feel changed in a way that cannot be undone. Moved by the ocean, the respect of the people for the earth that holds and supports them, I return to the main land deeply inspired. Incredibly excited to see how this short documentary film I have forged with director Phil Cairney takes form in the edits room back in London.
