Ceremony Shield, Sir Doug Nicholls Indigenous Round 2021

This shield signifies the significance of Ceremony and the coming together of two Clans. Each Clan is represented by their totem animal or symbol which is marked at each end of the artefact. In the Aboriginal world we are guided by our totem and must protect it and be respectful.

Clans would meet for Ceremony on sacred Bora Circles; the larger of those areas were for women and the public to watch on whilst the smaller was for the men and Ceremony. This shield represents strength in connection to Culture and the importance each Clan has in their role with Ceremony.

The pieces are then fitted into customised cardboard boxes and labelled with fragile stickers. They are then placed into the hands of the experts and transported to their new home.
