centre of gauze held together with grass seeds

from Lisa, Ken and Flis

A group of people that were in Armidale for the 'Symmetrical Planting' installation, each took home some gauze when the work was rolled up. Lisa used some of her's in an animation and returned this lot with a card.
Lisa's partner Ken sent these 3 samples of gauze tubes
Flis sent her donation along in a St John's first aid bag

From Jan and Rob

This gauze roll has been in Jan's bushwalking medical kit for years, being mainly used by other walkers to bandage their feet to protect from further blistering. The gauze has been to the Wollemi Pine with Jan, who was with Wyn Jones the pair of botanists that identified the tree from fosil records. Jan worked on the site of the pine recording and researching.

This roll came to Australia with Rob all the way from New Zealand about 15 years ago. It had been kept in a metal tin and has rust stains on the edges of the roll.
