Let me introduce you to
“Vintage Weet-Bix”
A beautiful bunch of Native Australian grass in an iconic 1930's Weet-Bix tin.

I've thought of absolutely everything - Let me talk you through what you are seeing here ...

From left to right.
Kangaroo Grass (Themeda triandra)
Wallaby Grass (Rytidosperma caespitosum)
Bunny Tail Grass (Lagurus ovatus)
Windmill Grass (Chloris truncata)
Silky Blue Grass (Dichanthium sericeum)
Swamp Foxtail Grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides ‘Nafray’)

In 1932, almost 1 in 3 Australians were out of work. Sanitarium offered a series of gifts including linen and cookware, claimed using coupons found inside Weet-Bix packets.

Also the original Weet-Bix kid, Don Bradman, lifted the country's spirits by scoring a record 452 not out in one cricket innings. Another Aussie icon was the Sydney Harbour Bridge opening in 1932. Which i captured the spirit of this in my Bushels tin illustration.

Created with watercolours and gouache paints and fine liner pens. 
Also available as a card.
