NGARGA WARENDJ x ANIMALIA - BAREBIN BUK THE TURTLE METAL ART
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. - Mick Harding

All animals are made from Corten steel which is designed to rust. This gives them long term protection against the elements, and a beautiful patina that shifts with seasons. (If you prefer your animal does not rust you can purchase a product at your local hardware store that you can spray on to delay the rusting process.)
Here are some instructions for easy install
Choose a tree or post that will be your animal's new home.
Ngarga Warendj x Animalia designs look best framed against
open sky, so their silhouette can come to life.
Firmly hold your animal at your chosen height, spiky tip
pointing into the wood.
Use a hammer to bury the tip about 3 cm into the wood,
leaving the animal sitting out.
If you’re finding it difficult to hammer in your
Ngarga Warendj x Animalia design, you’re probably dealing
with a harder wood – try drilling a small pilot hole before hammering your design in.
