This exquisite ink captures Bennelong's story, mirroring his life's vibrant complexity and his unique role as an interlocutor between the British colonisers and his people. In the bottle, it appears a harmonious blend of instant coffee and dark forest green, but its true magic unfurls once it meets the paper.
Upon contact, the ink blossoms into a deep eucalypt green, reminiscent of the lush bushland of Bennelong's homeland. This verdant hue whispers tales of ancient gum trees, under whose shade Bennelong first learnt the ways of his people.
In a surprising twist, the ink teases out highlights and halos of green and blue, mirroring the crystal-clear waters of Sydney Harbour, where Bennelong encountered the British for the first time.
Retreating to the fine lines around the ink pools, the original eucalypt green lingers, mirroring Bennelong's return to and enduring connection to his roots. On the best quality paper and with the wettest pen, a faint green sheen emerges, a final tribute to his enduring spirit.
Woollarawarre Bennelong ink is more than just a writing medium. It's an invitation to embrace Bennelong's legacy of curiosity, resilience, and adaptability in your writing. We recommend a wet, broad nib pen to fully appreciate this ink's unique properties. Let Woollarawarre Bennelong inspire your words, just as his extraordinary life continues to inspire us today.
