PARRYING SHIELD MEDIUM - GAWARRN ECHIDNA DESIGN
Parrying Malgarr Medium with Gawarrn the Echidna 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.
Gawarrn the Echidna is a very prickly fella. He is covered
in hard spikes and that is how he protects himself.
He is active after the cold time and reminds us that Gaan
the Snake is now active as well.
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 PMM
Measurements: 700mm L x 120mm W x 20mm Deep
Please note: Due to these items being handmade, these

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