NGARGA WARENDJ x ANIMALIA - DHULIN THE GOANNA METAL ART
Dhulin the Goanna is one of the six special men who helped Bundjil the Wedge Tailed Eagle - our Creator - when he created the Earth. Bundjil taught all the special men how to look after his creations - the mountains and the rivers, man, woman and all the animals. He taught them how to make weapons, how to fight with them, and how to behave with one another.
After Bundjil had finished, Bellum Bellum the Musk Crow blew Dhulin and the other special men to the stars. - 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.
