Description

‘Mura Friend’ - iDPet x Art series Contemporary indigenous collaboration with Bigi Nagala.

‘Mura Friend’ – meaning Shadow friend in Bidjara.

We feel so privileged to be able to bring you this exclusive contemporary indigenous print created by proud Aboriginal Bidjara woman and Artist Sheri Skele.


Sheri shares her culture, experiences, and hopes for healing country and history through her knowledge and story works. Bigi Nagala means ' I am dreaming' in Bidjara and is the name of her business. Sheri’s land spans across Southwest Queensland and is home to substantial Indigenous cultural heritage, Indigenous healing places, undisturbed natural bushlands, lagoons, wildlife, and ancient waterways. Bidjara is the place where the Rainbow Serpent, Mundagudda, began its movement through the landscape and formed the waterways including the sandstone gorge itself.


This artwork titled ’Mura Friend’ represents our relationship with our companion animals and shows the beauty of our Traditional land and it’s naturally changing environment. Throughout this painting you will see the spirits between man and dingo connecting with the intention of protection, loyalty and devotion for eternity. Dingos are symbolic of the mythical and physical realms and are thought to be able to perceive evil spirits undetectable by man, and therefore made valuable guarders of camp sites. Also scattered throughout this artwork you will find hills, creeks, plants, camp sites, dingo tracks, coolamons, and digging sticks to help forage and gather food. For Aboriginal people everything they need is on country, and protection of country is at the very core of their culture, therefore is it is our responsibility to care for it.


$2 of each Bigi Nagala x iDpet product sold will be donated on a quarterly basis on behalf of Sheri and you our #idpetcrew to;https://gunawirra.org.au/our-story/

Made from high-quality breathable fabrics, our masks contain a small pouch which fits a PM 2.5 filter (2 included with each mask) that helps to filter out small dust particles and water droplets.


Quality fabrics are used, with a cotton lining inside for comfort and 100% polyester on the outside for durability.


No need to replace the entire mask as the mask itself is reusable and washable. Simply remove the filters from the pouch and machine wash mask, then replace with new filter (filters are not washable or reusable).


Our masks are made to fit adults. Each mask also comes with small rubber fixtures which can be used on the ear straps to create a tight and firm fitting.
