WALL SHIELD MEDIUM - GARRNG GARRNG KOOKABURRA DESIGN
Wall Malgarr with Garrng Garrng Kookaburra 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.
Garrng Garrng is the Taungwurrung name for the Kookaburra.
It is a bird that is known for its distinctive laugh and is a skilled hunter
with its large beak. You can often hear Garrng Garrng early in the
morning, laughing in the distance.
