PARRYING SHIELD LARGE WIDE - GOORBIL THE KOALA DESIGN
Parrying Malgarr - Large Wide with Goorbil Koala Design.
Traditionally malgarr ( shields ) were used with liyangayil
(fighting clubs) for hand to hand combat with our enemies.
I have replicated the shape of these shields in my artwork.
Goorbil the Koala likes to sit high in the safety of eucalyptus
trees. Goorbil will only eat gum leaves and prefers the tasty
leaves from the tips of the branches. Goorbil sleeps for up to
20 hours a day. Goorbils closest relative is Warendj the Wombat.
Hand crafted in Australia from Australian Red Cedar timber.

The card has information about the artist, artefact and design.
All designs are based on traditional symbols from
