Description
Wurundjeri dancers are depicted performing songs and dances, witnessed by figures in possum-skin cloaks, found in the lower section. Punctuated by native animals: echidna, platypus and goanna. Two campfires on the left and right. Symbolic marking adorn the figures, indicative of their clan identity
