Wall Malgarr with Gugra Possum Cloak 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.
Walert the Possum is a night feeder, and a day sleeper. We use possum skins to make Gugra or possum skin cloaks, which we wear to keep warm. We decorate the cloaks and wear them in our traditional ceremony
Hand crafted in Australia from Australian Red Cedar timber.
