Koskela has been working with Tangentyere Artists all year to develop and license a range of artworks, which adorns our wrapping paper, gift tags, greeting cards and in-store holiday displays.
Dancing at Christmas Time in Alice Springs by Grace Kemarre Robinya is one of the artworks we licenced, which has been applied to our wrapping paper.
Grace states of the painting:
Happy times, Merry Christmas – night time dancing in Alice Springs. All the single men standing up along the back. On the left and front are couples and families are happy to dance. Little girls happy for fresh tree – Christmas tree – really fresh one. Two loudspeakers beside the tree. Slim Dusty one – they always dance. Everybody shaking to the music, all happy. Merry Christmas!
