Possum Skin Cloak
Wrap Culture Around You - Cloaks, Clothing and Jewellery
The safety and the warmth of a cloak is a real thing, you wrap it around you and carry your children, it's used in everyday life. In most instances it's used in death as well. You're wrapped in your cloak and buried. I read a quote once about a blanket of love. For me the possum skin cloak is symbolic of wrapping that love and that culture around you, it's symbolic of the warmth and the safety of belonging and of knowing who you are.
