Deberer, Bogong Moths were gathered in the Victorian Alps by our Liwik (ancestors) during the Biderap (dry season). They are a very rich source of protein. They follow Bunjils law and wear his markings.
This Bogong Moth Aboriginal Pin is a cloisonnne style, high quality metal brooch.
Packaged in a recycled cardboard Gift Box, the pin comes with information about the artist and artwork on the pin.
