Small Parrying Malgarr with Womindjeka Gum Leaves 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.

Many Gum Leaves  “Djerrang-U Wurrdhadindu”
Green gum leaves are burnt in a “darnuk” or wooden bowl. 
This creates smoke, which we invite visitors to walk through to be cleansed and welcomed to our country. Womindjeka - Welcome
