Introducing the Noongar Six Seasons Spinner Dial with a Viewer Window: a captivating educational resource that celebrates the rich indigenous culture of Western Australia. Designed and made locally by Global Gumnuts and Nursery, this spinner dial incorporates images from artist Sidhe via Vector under an Expanded License. The intricate symbols that adorn the dial were thoughtfully designed to reflect the essence of Australian culture and are part of a unique visual language found throughout various Aboriginal cultures across Australia.
Available in two sizes, 12cm or 20cm in diameter, this spinner dial is not just beautiful workman ship, but also a fantastic educational tool that enables children to focus on the season represented in the Viewer Window as they turn the sectional piece through the season. The design is UV printed on MDF and finished with a non-toxic lacquer, guaranteeing both durability and safety. Engage in discussions about how nature changes annually as you explore the Indigenous Seasonal Descriptions, including the weather type, colors for each season, flora and fauna activities, Noongar names, and the corresponding months of the year. Witness the smooth transitions between the six seasons, which provide a deep connection to the land and its cycles.

At Global Gumnuts and Nursery, we take pride in supporting indigenous communities. Part of the proceeds from every purchase of the Noongar Six Seasons Spinner Dial is donated to the Waalitj Foundation, formerly known as the Wirrpanda Foundation. This foundation, whose name means "eagle" in Noongar language, is committed to empowering indigenous Australians through education, employment, and community engagement. Furthermore, all copyright fees, transfer fees, royalty fees, and compensation for the artist's work have been paid to ensure proper recognition and support, as per the licensing agreement between Global Gumnuts and Nursery and the artist. It's important to acknowlege that symbols, stories, and meanings are exclusive to each culture. The designs used for this product are those that I have purchased.

Imperfects are those with defects such as burn marks/ rough edges, natural unsightly wood defects (grain), viewer window does not rotate perfectly or blurry print etc. These visually look fine - just not perfect makes in our eyes.
