Biik - Red Earth, Red House

 

Rich red earth is the foundation for the strength and stability of our connection to country – this is where our heart is. Each layer of dirt contributes a significant role in creating a resilient and proud environment in which all can thrive and grow, even in times of challenge. Layers within the ground represent the various pathways and journeys each student takes and comes from to form the earth.

A strong-minded goanna bears the traits of the earth and is determined and resourceful – it is respectful to its surroundings and passionate with its efforts. The circles in the sky represent unity and togetherness and the strength in community connection. The arc of U shapes across the sky signifies the students within the school and their sense of purpose to always give their best.

Need care and delivery info on our original pieces?

Our original pieces are part of our spirit. They are are created with pieces of ourselves and our sacred cultural knowledge. We take the transporting of such special creations very seriously, therefore all originals are firstly wrapped in layers of foam wrapping before several layers of bubble wrap. The pieces are then fitted into customised cardboard boxes and labelled with fragile stickers. They are then placed into the hands of the experts and transported to their new home. 

Got a question about returns or refunds?

We take quality control very seriously and ensure all products are in the best condition before sending off to their new home. We therefore ask that you choose carefully before checkout as we do not issue return items or refunds.
