  1. Yawkyawk Billabong Play
    Yawkyawk Billabong Play
    Product Code: 320285
    Price $219.89 $199.90
    Yawkyawk are female water spirits that closely resemble the European idea of mermaids. Half spirit, half fish, they entice unwary fishermen beneath the water of the lagoons that are their domain throughout Arnhem Land. They may have long hair like reeds of trailing water weed and can take on the features of fish or body of a snake. When fully grown Yawkyawk spirits can leave their water hole to forage for food by changing their fishtails into legs to walk on dry land or assume the shape of a dragonfly to fly. Yawkyawk figures are also closely associated with Ngaloyd, the Rainbow Serpent and can be associated with sorcery. This set is a great resource for bringing indigenous perspectives into common interests such as under the sea and mermaids. Colours and designs may vary. Includes: 1 x Yawkyawk, 3 x Fish, 1 x Felt Billabong. Made of fabric and wood. Yawkyawk measures 16cmL, Billabong measures 24cm in diameter. Learn More
