PARRYING SHIELD - BUDJA PLATYPUS DESIGN
Parrying Malgarr with Budja the Platypus 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.
Budja the Platypus is a good indicator of river health.
Budja is a busy little fella who lives in the water and on the land.
Budja lays eggs to produce its offspring.
Hand crafted in Australia from Australian Red Cedar timber.
