Description

The `Southern Right Whale` Qantas Wallabies Exclusive Indigenous Art Jersey designed by Natalie Bateman

Natalie belongs to the Yuin tribes of NSW and one of the largest Aboriginal families living on the South Coast. Her family are sea dwellers whose lives revolve around the ocean, hunting and gathering seafood. Growing up with an ocean based lifestyle and family has influenced the style and subjects of Natalie’s artworks.

As well as enjoying a close relationship with the ocean, Natalie has also forged a close association with Rugby through Uncles, Mark, Gary and Glen Ella, who all represented the Wallabies throughout the 1980s.

The 13 Jerseys, which have been individually hand painted by Natalie Bateman have also been signed by every living Indigenous player to have represented the Wallabies, making them a unique collector’s item for any Rugby or sporting memorabilia fan.

Each of the 13 Jerseys have been uniquely decorated with a different Indigenous artwork as part of a series called ‘Gadhu’ which in the South Coast, NSW Dhurga Language means ‘Sea’. The theme around each one of the 13 uniquely painted Jesreys is ‘Gadhu’- sea., because as Natalie states “The sea connects everyone”.

The Jersey being auctioned depicts a Southern Right Whale.

Funds raised will be used to assist the 2012 U16 National Indigenous side undertake a Rugby Tour to France in September 2013. (189769-1)
