Australian Quilt Tree



One of the stories from the NQR:
"Only five possum skin cloaks made in south-eastern Australia before 1900 have survived. Two are in Museum Victoria's collection. The others are in museums in Britain, the U.S.A. and Germany. The meaning of the designs on this cloak were not recorded. However, designs could represent clan design, natural features, animals and plants." [Dr. Michael Pickering 23.8.00]
