'Kawir & Kuthun'
'Why the Emu can't fly and why the Brolga has only two eggs.'
This traditional dreamtime story has been translated into English, illustrated by local community adults and children, designed by a local designer and printed by a local printer. It is an object of pride for the whole Deniliquin, NSW, creative community.
The story messages are 'sharing is important' and 'greed leads to loss'.
