Murra Wolka is owned and operated by the family of Joe Skeen. It all started when Joe Skeen passed down tradition of making boomarangs to his children. Since its establishment some three decades ago, the family has worked in unity to promote the indigenous culture of Australia. Indigenous Australian art is very similar to the symbolic and abstract elements of modern art. Traditional media include bone painting, stone painting, and sand painting. Stone paintings were crucial for conveying indigenous hunting practices and animal migration and imparting customs and traditions to the next generation.
