Number Three Round Brush made by Holbein, circa 1993. Used by artist Yoka Van Den Brink in Newport, Victoria, to paint items using Hindeloopen techniques. Hindeloopen craft techniques date back to the 16th century, to the port of Hindeloopen, in Friesland in the North of Holland where sailors developed a decorative tradition of handpainting domestic items to add colour to the dark houses through winter. Motifs include flowers, scrolls, buds, birds and sometimes bible scenes and landscapes.

Physical Description
