Bush Melon an original artwork by Betty Mbitjana has been used by our artisans to create this outfit to use with this 21cm doll.

For thousands of years, Aboriginal people were hunters and gatherers living entirely on the abundant wild food also known as bush tucker. Nowadays many of them still eat this traditional food but they no longer rely on it for survival.

The Bush Melon is a sweet bush tucker that once grew in abundance at Utopia. As well as providing water, these melons are a good source of some essentials vitamins and minerals. Betty’s mother and other women would gather the fruit to be eaten at once, or to be stored for times when bush tucker was scarce.

The Aboriginal iconography in this work refers to awelye (body paint) associated with the women’s ceremony and the bush melon. The U-shape with lines represents women and other lines represent body painting markings. The large circles represent a ceremonial site and small circles represent the bush melon itself. The dotted areas are seed pods rom the bush melon.

In creating this adorable aboriginal doll set we selected the Miniland range of 21cm dolls.  Miniland's range is created to help teach the important concepts of family, co-existence and respect for racial diversity.

Made in Spain, each anatomically correct doll is dressed in white underwear and subtly vanilla scented! Made from Phytalates-free vinyl, the dolls are soft and flexible to the touch. Each doll is 21 cm tall. Moveable arms, legs and head.
