Gunga winhunga warr bundha ba winhunga warr djurring
Named by Elders of the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation, Gunga winhunga warr bundha ba winhunga warr djurring translates to “Take what you need and not what you greed’. The idea for the sculpture comes from the three magnificent gums the sculpture is nestled under. It is inspired by the special significance of the Manna or Wurun tree to the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung People and their sustainable use of segments of bark removed to create vessels and shields. This almond like shape is morphed and twisted into to form evocative of a fallen twisted bough.
I acknowledge the land on which I live and work is the traditional country of the Wurundjeri Woi wurrung people. I pay my respects to elders’ past, present and emerging.
