- Red Waratah lamp shade.
There is a rich aboriginal history regarding the red Waratah, Gulpilil’s Stories of the Dreamtime tells a story explaining how the white waratah became red. In the story, a female wonga pigeon flew above the tree canopy looking for her lost mate. She was caught by a hawk but broke free, tearing her breast. She landed on a white waratah and her flowing blood stained it red. As she flew from flower to flower, the blood from the wounds drenched all the flowers red.
If you stick your finger in the flower when it is in bloom you’ll see the “blood” of the pigeon on your finger. The red nectar is sweet, and a medicinal tonic can be made from the red blooms.
Perfect for table lamps, bedside table lamps, floor lamps or ceiling lamps. Great quality and long-lasting, my lamp shades are made from top quality materials and professional rolled edges.
