PARRYING SHIELD SMALL - WARRIIN THE WOMBAT DESIGN
Small Parrying Malgarr with Warriin the Wombat 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.
Warriin the Wombat is a solitary fella. He is a vegetarian who spends most of the dayin his burrow and feeds at night. In one of our Taungwurrung creation stories, Warriin and Marram the Kangaroo were good mates.
One day they had a fight because Warriin would not let Marram into his burrow, Marram cut off Warriin tail with his axe.Warriin was so mad he threw a spear at Marram, and this became stuck in his back end and is now his tail
