About the Artist - Mick Harding
Mick Harding belongs to the Yowung-Illam-Baluk clan of the Taungwurung people - a tribe of the Kulin nation. Mick was born in Melbourne.
'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.
