PARRYING SHIELD - BARRING TRACK DESIGN
Parrying Malgarr with Barring 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 about
the artist, artefact and design. All designs are based on traditional symbols
from South East Australia.
Size: Small Wide
Measurements: 550mm L x 155mm 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
