These insulated porcelain mugs featuring artwork by Mick Harding (Ngarga Warendj - Dancing Wombat).
Ngarga Warendj (Dancing Wombat) by Victorian Artist Mick Harding.
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.
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 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.
