Wall Malgarr Shield Mick Harding
Wall Malgarr Shield with BareBin Buk Turtle 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.
Barebin Buk the Long Necked Turtle lives in the still waters
of rivers and creeks. He is a good indicator of river health
Hand crafted in Australia from Australian Red Cedar timber.
