Another version of this tag to be produced mid 2013
When I saw an interest survey for 'Dance' tags to be produced I jumped in with this one.
It depicts the beautiful relationship that Australian Aboriginals have with the their land and the wildlife.
Moving together as one entity . Displaying a depth of understanding and synergy.
You might like to know a little more about our Brolga :-
Well-known for its legendary dance, the Brolga is one of the largest water birds in Australia.
Other names for the elegant grey Australian bird with the red head are "Australian crane" and "Native Companion". Without doubt, the native companion is Australia's most treasured water bird. This feathered creature is another stunning example of the beautiful fauna you will see when travelling in the Australian Outback.
Why does the Australian Crane dance ?
The secret of the dance is not solved yet. Dancing happens at any time of the year. There are several aboriginal legends around this amazing dancing bird. One story goes that a young maiden was turned into this elegant bird because of her continuous dancing.
Ornithologists think that the dance strengthen the bonds between couples. Once they have mated they stay together for a lifetime. Don't most humans dream about that? :) Whatever the reason behind the dancing, it is wonderful to experience this spectacular sight.
