Brolga is a common wetland bird belonging to the crane family  in Australia. It is also known as the Australian Crane. In the Aboriginal Dreamtime, many people refer Brolga to a beautiful young lady who had extraordinary dancing skills. People from various lands came just to see her dance like the wind. Elders from various tribes and communities gathered to watch and also to discuss other communal matters.

Months later, an evil spirit spied Brolga and spun her away while she was practising her dance. Family and friends  of Brolga looked everywhere to find her until she was found on a distant plain and then the  evil spirit vanished into the sky taking Brolga away. Soon after this, a beautiful bird appeared, stretching its  wings and making moved that resembled Brolga.  This made the people realise that Brolga’s spirit escaped from the evilspirit and had turned into a bird.

 Nambooka, also known as Bea Edwards, is a descendant from the Pyemmairrener clan of Tasmania. She lives in Melbourne Australia. Many of her creations are in public galleries and private collections.
