This is a portrait of Kookelko J. Burra (Kooka for sort). He has no real claim to fame, but his mothers, cousins, sisters, son was the kookaburra rumoured to sit on an electric wire, resulting in the need to jump up and down while his pants were on fire.
This brooch was laser cut in Buninyong, Australia using the eco-friendly wood of the Alder Tree. Alder trees have a rapid growth rate and help increase nitrogen and organic matter in the soil, which assists in the improvement of soils with poor fertility.
This brooch measures 5.8cms high x 4.2cms wide.
