PARRYING SHIELD LARGE - GAAN THE SNAKE DESIGN
Large Parrying Malgarr with Gaan the Snake 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.
Gaan the Snake is a very clever hunter and only ever takes
what he needs. Warmer weather sees snakes out and about
looking for food and shelter & its mating time. Snakes
can move more quickly in the warmer months,
and in Victoria mostly hiberate in the cooler months -
but can be seen out if there is a warm day.
Hand crafted in Australia from Australian Red Cedar timber.
