Russell Davey Carving

Our Culture

Added by PAKAM

Description Russell "Wossie" Davey is a Bardi man and carver of traditional materials. He lives in One Arm Point on the Dampier Peninsula, which is north of Broome.
Russell depicts art through his carvings of Trochus Shell, Pearl Shell and Boab Nuts. There are only a few carvers surviving on the Dampier Peninsula and Russell is one of a few younger generation carvers.
His passion is teaching this trade to his son and young generations, so they may pass on and uphold the knowledge of this unique style of art. Russell also teaches his son and other young people about traditional knowledge of the land and survival.
