This special piece has been a collaboration between a Politician (Christine Milne) a Professor (Sandra Harding) an Artist (Lea Stein) and a Business Owner (Bruna Harrison of Harlequin Market). The image in the form of a brooch of the White Lemuroid Ringtail Possum (Yuwa) has been produced by French artist Lea Stein for the purpose of bringing attention and awareness of the plight of this endangered species.
The White Possum population which inspired the creation of the brooch resides on the traditional lands of the Eastern Kuku Yalanji, in tropical northern Queensland in northeast Australia. After a severe heatwave hit the region in late 2005, dead possums of several species were found along forest roads and the Yuwa seemed to have vanished.
There are only 300 Limited Edition brooches available. Each piece purchased will come with a signed and numbered Authenticity Certificate signed by Lea Stein herself and 5% of every sale will go to a wildlife fund for the preservation of this particular species.
