About the Artwork

Ngarga Warendj (Dancing Wombat) by Victorian Artist Mick Harding.

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.

The five gumleaves represent the five language groups that make up the Kulin Nation: Boonwurrung, Woiwurrung, Taungwurrung, Wadawurrung, and Djadjawurrung.

The shields represent our individuality and the protection of our families. All the symbols are unique to South Eastern Australia and they demonstrate connection to our country.

About the Artist

Mick Harding belongs to the Yowung-Illam-Baluk clan of the Taungwurung 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 artifacts 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.
