The Bird

The Pink Galah of Australia is a majestic and cheeky creature. This beautiful bird is also known as the pink and grey cockatoo or rose-breasted cockatoo as they wear an attractive plumage of these colours with pride and sass.

These highly social birds love to feast on seeds specifically, they love grass seeds, Acacia (Wattles) and Casuarinas (She-Oak). Galahs are known to be daredevil high flyers and aerial masters, reaching speeds up to 70km/hr. These birds are monogamous, mate for life and make their nests in hollow parts of trees. To catch a sight of a pink fluff ball exiting a hole in a tree is quite endearing.

The name of the Galah is thought to find its origin derived from the word Gilaa in the Yuwaalaraay Aboriginal language, a tribe from northern New South Wales.

 

The Artist

My name is Lili Jacobsen, but I am better known locally in my hometown of Bundaberg as Wattle Woman.  I am a First Nations Person of the Gubbi Gubbi region living on Taribelang, Bailai, Gurang and Gooreng Gooreng country.

I am an artist and for the past three years, I have specialised in polymer clay earrings. I take inspiration from the beauty and power of the Australian Flora and Fauna and also my Indigenous Australian heritage when creating my work.

Each pair that I create, holds a piece of my spirit, energy and story within them which makes all my handcrafted earrings uniquely special and precious.
