Baan - Water, Blue House


Waa the Crow is the Keeper of Wind and Water. He flies above the calm sacred waterways of the Birrarung, the river of mists and shadows (Yarra River) ensuring all creatures live in harmony with and look after the environment. A family of long neck turtles, a cod and platypus inhabit the waters with respect and compassion. Although these animals have individual personalities and traits, they work together in creating an inclusive, well-balanced and supportive place for all.

A bark canoe sits afloat carved with special markings. The markings represent strength in community and student determination, the canoe is carved from the manna gum tree – this tree reflects the connection of the school on Wurundjeri country.

Need care and delivery info on our original pieces?

Our original pieces are part of our spirit. They are are created with pieces of ourselves and our sacred cultural knowledge. We take the transporting of such special creations very seriously, therefore all originals are firstly wrapped in layers of foam wrapping before several layers of bubble wrap. 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.
