Dancing Wombat (Eagle) Fine Bone China Mug
Based on artwork by Mick Harding
Mug comes packaged with information about the artist and artwork.
Womindjeka is what we say to friends and strangers when we welcome them onto our country. We offer them a gum leaf as their passport and they must observe Bunjils law. Bunjil the wedge tailed eagle is the creator spirit for the Kulin people.
Mick Harding belongs to the Yowung-Illam-Baluk clan of the Taungwurrung people - a tribe of the Kulin nation. Mick was born in Melbourne.
Mick draws inspiration from the compelling legends of his people and weaves the images of those legends into each of his original artworks, which reflect the unique symbols and artefacts of South East Australia.
Each of the artworks Mick creates, is linked to a legend and challenges the viewer to understand their place in the story.
