Neck Heat Pack - Sandhills At Sunset
This print is designed by Aboriginal artist, Holly Sanders. Holly Sanders is a proud Bundjalung artist and educator from the North Coast of New South Wales. She currently lives and works on Yuin Country, on the South Coast of New South Wales. Through her art, she aims to share her stories, culture, and Country in a contemporary way.
This piece represents the importance of sand environments on Bundjalung Country. Sand environments around the ocean and estuaries provided an abundance of wild food where there were always plenty of resources to share among the community. Turtles, shellfish, swan and duck eggs, and plants such as water lily bulbs, sea celery, and pig face were among some of the many food resources. Middens were also common and unfortunately, sand mining and development destroyed many valuable midden sites. The passing on of knowledge about Country to the younger generation is an important tradition and sand painting was also a common art form in coastal areas, where coloured sands were used to create a temporary picture and story which was then washed away by the next high tide - Holly Sanders.
- No odour
- Won't sweat when heated
- Retains heat longer than a traditional wheat heat pack
As a long term user of various heat packs from a variety of suppliers, I am delighted with this one from The Spoonie Society. The divisions sewn into the pack make it very comfortable and secure around my neck. I won't be looking anywhere else when I need another! A great product.
Loving the neck heat pack, such a great design
