MINI SHIELD - BARE BIN BUK TURTLE DESIGN
Mini Malgarr Shield with Womindjeka Gum Leaves 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.
Barebin Buk the Long Necked Turtle is native to South East Australia.
They are often found in slow moving water, in the still waters of rivers
and creeks such as the swamps or wetlands. He is a good indicator
of the health of the wetlands and rivers. He is a spirit animal for many mobs.
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.
