Kalimnah Property Sign

KALIMNAH IS A RURAL PROPERTY in northern New South Wales, and the name is Aboriginal for ‘beautiful’. With its striking dimensional motif of gumnuts and leaves, this handcrafted sign is living up to its name, and makes a beautiful entrance sign that welcomes visitors and lets them know that they have arrived at the right place.

Gum nuts are a favorite theme on signs (and really anything that uses decorations), since gum trees are such a familiar part of the Australian landscape. There is also just something appealing about these hardy and woody fruits of the eucalyptus, which come in an amazing variety of shapes, sizes and colors – from tiny round balls to large bell-shaped cones to square looking box-type nuts. It isn’t surprising that May Gibbs, the Australian author, wrote her popular adventure stories around a host of lovable little gumnut babies, which are so easy to imagine when you study a gumnut up close. Ask anyone who has grown up in Australia and they will certainly know about Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, the Banksia men, and all the other vivid bushland characters who have fired up many a child’s imagination.

The gumnuts and leaves on this classy property sign were sculpted using hand gouges and painted by hand. The text was incise carved with chisels and gilded with 23kt gold leaf. This dimensional handcrafted sign is made of high density urethane (HDU) which has the same density, weight and feel as wood, but will outlast wood, since it is completely waterproof and insect-proof.
