Image: Dilly bag from Queensland
This is a yoke-shaped dilly bag from Boulia in south-western Queensland. It is made from woollen blanket thread and banded in green, orange and yellow with a navy and white polka-dotted cloth handle knotted onto the bag at diagonally opposite ends of the top opening. It is covered with the remnants of a red-brown ochre coating. It was collected in 1905 and feathers, plant matter and human hair were found inside it. It is 57 cm in width by 22 cm in length.
