*Elma Kris, an indigenous Australian artist, examined Torres Straits islander cultural material in the collection of the British Museum (London), to interpret and re-establish the link between the objects and their cultural context. It was her telling the story of the Bailer Shell from Mer that grabbed my imagination. Kris said: “The shell reminds me of the duties of a woman in families and the community. The vessel was used to scoop saltwater, delivering this resource for healing and cleansing.”
