We recieved a lovely email over the weekend from Glen Holland, director of Healsville Sanctuary in Victoria that they were filming with Aunty Joy. She is a local Aboriginal elder and William Barak was her great grandfather! So lovely.
Our latest edition to the Rabbit and Dogman is the Deerman.
The deer has been previously used as an animal for which they ride on (below). However we decided to take this one step further and make him into a deer man.
The word “deer” was originally broad in meaning, but became more specific over time. It meant a wild animal of any kind. This is why we have chosen the deer as out animal, it expressed freedom and that we all have a wild side.
