The Tasmania JackJumpers jersey for NBL’s Indigenous Round showcases palawa Tasmanian Aboriginal art, found on rock carvings across our state, some dating back more than 14,000 years old. The cultural symbols – known as petroglyphs – are made by using a traditional engraving practice to expose different colours beneath the rock surface, to create the ancient symbols, these engravings are sacred to the palawa people, Tasmanian Aboriginal people and are a true representation of the depth of history of belonging to our island.
These symbols are important connections to lutruwita [Tasmania], connecting people to place. The petroglyphs are incorporated into the jersey that includes the design of a jack jumper on a mound. Tasmanian Aboriginal culture is quite unique – palawa artists do not use dot paintings found elsewhere in Australian aboriginal culture. Instead our palawa artist used lines and other cultural symbols to create the story that connects Tasmania’s native insect, the jack jumper, to ancient aboriginal artwork – the petroglyphs.
Rep this unique story with pride in this Tasmania JackJumpers 21/22 Authentic Indigenous Jersey. It features indigenous artwork incorporated with the team colours on our premium, sports mesh fabric.
