PARRYING SHIELD SMALL - BARRING EMU TRACK DESIGN
Parrying Malgarr with Barring Emu Track 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.
Barring is a track that our old people used for walking to a
different country. They also used tracks as part of complex
trade route system. Animals also have their own tracks,
which we use to warranwgan ( hunt ) them.
Hand crafted in Australia from Australian Red Cedar timber.
All artefacts come with an information card.
The card has information aboutthe artist, artefact and design.
All designs are based on traditional symbols from
South East Australia.
Size: Small Wide PMS
Measurements: 550mm L x 120mm W x 20mm Deep
Please note: Due to these items being handmade, these
measurements are approximate only.
Shields come with a hanger attached to the back ( see photo )
to make for easy hanging on your wall.
