BANDED DIDGERIDOO WITH BEE, SNAKE & GOANNA
Hand carved by the Jinibara people, a one-of-a-kind didgeridoo.
All our didgeridoos are eucalyptus (gumtree) trunk naturally hollowed by white ants (termites) in the Australian bush. They have a beeswax mouth and are hand-carved and burnt with cultural symbols including bees, wallabies, turtles, water holes and suns. Our didgeridoos make a beautiful sound covering all notes.
This particular didgeridoo tells the story of the Jinibara people. Included on this didgeridoo are symbols representing their totem, the native bee, the snake, goanna, water holes, the sun, moon and stars and and women's meeting places.
"We have the bee, the turtle, goanna and the snake represented here which are our food sources. The three rings symbolise the water hole with the running stream between it. The two rings mean a resting area with a walkway between it.
The five boomerangs means the people are happy and dancing, the dots symbolise the milky way and there is a sun and the moon and the stars, woman’s meeting place, the man’s meeting place"
