The 3.1 metre Heartland Didgeridoo, the longest didgeridoo we have ever had in the store, has found a new home far far away in Egersund Norway and is now proudly displayed there in the Kakadu store. It has already created a lot of interest with a local newspaper already running a feature on it.
Our Norwegian friend Eivind who visits Australia every year and who already has quite an impressive collection of didgeridoos from Spirit Gallery could not resist this monster didge when he came face to face with it in the gallery. Check out Eivind with his new toy and its final resting place in Norway.
Thanks also to Sandy and Lee Harden, our American friends who purchased the other favourite Spirit Gallery piece of 2013 – the dot painted bench. This bench was painted by 10 individual artists from the Keringke Art Centre in the remote community of Santa Teresa in the central Australian desert. Each artist painted a different piece and once assembled we had one of the most remarkable pieces of Aboriginal Art we have seen. Check it out!
