Cheeky Shorts: Lava Tracks (Wundu)


Fabric Story:

Walking into our ancient volcanos unique patterns and shapes have formed on the roofs, walls and floors of the lava tubes. This white shows calcium carbonate forms of 'Sedimentary Materials', Mixing with other minerals these patterns leach through the porous basalt with ground water and redeposited along the cracks and crevaises.

Leaving intricate trails and patterns of lava lines. Our mob used these volcanos for shelter as they were places to stay cool in the summer and light fires to keep warm in the winter.
