Cushion Cover - Totem Wilai Possum

- A totem is a natural object, plant or animal that is inherited by members of a clan or family as their emblem and the group is responsible for the stewardship of their totem. My totem is the Wedge Tail Eagle.
- Possum-skin cloaks were a form of clothing worn by Aboriginal people in the south-east of Australia.
