This art tells of how the Lomandra grass is woven in a circle shape to symbolise how we all sat when weaving. For my Yinarrs the practice of weaving is about more than utility. It threads back together the links to country that were broken two centuries ago. Buyu is healing, it provides a safe place for me to reflect about things in a cultural space. Buyu has always been here it has just been sleeping, the Gawarrawarr have been waiting for me, it brings me back to country, when we Buyu and yarn we Buyu stories into baskets.
