HARDWOOD (MULGA) SEED GATHERING BOWL. THE EXTERIOR WITH TRADITIONAL POKERWORK DESIGNS

coolamon is an Indigenous Australian carrying vessel.

It is a multi-purpose shallow vessel, or dish with curved sides, ranging in length from 30–70cm, and similar in shape to a canoe.

Coolamons were traditionally used by Aboriginal women to carry water, fruits, nuts, as well as to cradle babies. Coolamons were carried on the head when travelling any distance, or under the arm if used as a cradle. If carried on the head, a ring pad (akartne in Arrernte) was placed on the head, made out of possum and/or human hair string, twisted grass, or feathers. This helped to cushion and support the carriage of the coolamon.

Coolamons were used for winnowing grains in the traditional bread-making process, as well as a general heating and cooking vessel.


APPROX. SIZE: 13" [33CM] IN LENGTH.
