Vertical Message Sticks

Traditionally messages were painted and inscribed on a stick, which was then transported by hand. Typical messages inscribed on the stick by painting, carving or burning would be announcements of ceremonies, disputes, invitations, warnings, meetings, events and happenings.

"My name is Girralang. I am a Wiradjuri Woman.

I am who I am and I know who I am.

I feel honoured to be part of the Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk.

I have chosen the theme of animals as I truly love them and they are native to this area and bring much joy to children and adults."
