Turtle - Ngarga Warendj
NEW to Present Story, the wonderful art of Mick Harding showcasing Mick's signature South Eastern Aboriginal Animal designs as stunning metal art creations.
"Barebin Buk the Long Necked Turtle is native to South East Australia. They are often found in slow moving water, in the still waters of rivers and creeks such as the swamps or wetlands.
He is a good indicator of the health of the wetlands and rivers. He is a spirit animal for many mobs.
Aboriginal art in Victoria is unique in its symbolism. It links with our stories and songlines like fingers reaching out to other areas of Australia.
When I create something I express my cultural integrity in place, be respectful of interpretation of my culture, and share my story as a Taungwurrung Kulin (Aboriginal man from my traditional country)." - Mick Harding
