Parrying Malgarr with Deberer the Bogong Moth Design.   

Traditionally malgarr ( shields ) were used with liyangayil
( fighting clubs) for hand to hand combat with our enemies. 
I have replicated the shape ofthese shields in my artwork.

Deberer the Bogong Moth were gathered in the High Country 
by our liwik (ancestors) during the biderap (dry season). 
They are a very rich source of protein.

Hand crafted in Australia from Australian Red Cedar timber.

All artefacts come with an information card. 
The card has information about the artist, artefact and design. 
All designs are based on traditional symbols from
South East Australia.

Size: Medium Wide PMMW

Measurements: 700mm L x 155mm W x 20mm Deep 
Please note: Due to these items being handmade, these
measurements are approximate only.

Shields come with a hanger attached to the back ( see photo )
to make for easy hanging on your wall.
