Story: Our Beautiful Country
Artist: Alicia Close
ARTIST - Alicia Close
Alicia Close is Goenpul clan from Minjerribah, North Stradbroke Island.
I grew up watching my Grandmother do many forms of art and craft. Listening to her stories, my families stories from my country, Quandamooka Country.
My art is inspired by my Old people.
Keeping their stories alive.
Their memory alive.
Keeping our culture strong by sharing those stories and old ways through my art so that knowledge continues to be passed down through the generations
Story: "Gnaree murumba djagan - nooboogooboo, booreen, koodgoondaboo, coobaggolabbo."
(Our beautiful country -yesterday, today, tomorrow, forever)
Artist: Alicia Close
Our people have lived on this country for thousands of years and have seen the change of the landscape and the arrival of people from many nations. We are a sharing culture. We share our customs, traditions and stories, ancient stories.
The present sea levels here today came about 7000 years ago. There are 21 known stories across different sites along the costline of Australia that retell this event, describing the changes of the landscape as the sea levels rose. One is from my home country, Quandamooka country.
It is truly amazing to live in a country and be part of a culture where stories have survived thousands of years where there was no written form of recording but only through our art, songs, dances, these stories have survived. May these stories live on for many more generations to come.
The oval shapes grouped together represent these stories and the area they came from. Also represented with the circles are some of the different groups throughout our country. Western, central desert, far north, and southern mobs. The lines connect us all. We are one people. One mob. We are still here and our culture is still strong. The central three circles represent The Creator, Biami. The central being to all things. Creator of the heavens and the earth and this beautiful country of ours that we live in.
Full measurement in centimetres.

I just LOVE the t-shirt! The colours are beautiful, and the fabric is great quality and lovely to wear. I have a few Bundarra pieces and I really like the way they wash easily. I’m hoping the long sleeve version of this shirt becomes available.
Fashion top purchase
My wife absolutely loves the top, really nice soft material and great design , will be ordering more
Sizes seem small
I love the top... but I wish I was told to order another size up for it to have a looser fit like on the model. Mine is way too clingy and I already ordered a size up to my usual size.
