Turtle Journey is a tranquil design, ideal for use as a meditation mat, camping mat or play mat. This Aboriginal design recycled mat comes in our mid-size, making it compact enough to fold up for transporting but large enough to gather your family or class group for a yarn or a meal.
Helen Price is an Queensland-based Indigenous artist, from Darumbal country. Her Turtle Journey design speaks of the real life migration pattern of turtles, who travel hundreds of miles for breeding season, but always return. The turtle never forgets where it comes from and nothing can keep it from coming home. “There is something inside, in its soul, that knows the way,” says the artist. It is similar in the journey back to country, where your soul is at home. It’s this literal and figurative journey that Price had in mind when she created Turtle Journey.
This mat is ideal as a souvenir of your Australian travels or as a discussion starter for multicultural early learning centres or community groups. The intense blue and striking turtle imagery will make a big visual impact in an office foyer or beach shopfront. Match this mat with an eye-catching cushion in a matching design and colour for a living room or outdoor area talking point!
Like all the authentic, Indigenous design play mats, camping mats and classroom mats available from Recycled Mats, Turtle Journey is easy to clean and care for. Made from 95% recycled plastics, dust, sand or food spills wipe away with ease, making them equally useful in the home or in public settings – indoors and outdoors.
