Andy Snelgar Shield


Hand carved shield by Andy Snelgar.

Andy Snelgar is a Ngemba carver based on the New South Wales north coast. Andy first started carving, some 25 years ago, under the instruction of his uncle (Paul Gordon) a very well recognised and respected elder of the Ngemba - Gurru-Gillu tribal association.

Andy works with both hardwoods and softwoods to create his works. Carving shields, mirru, clubs, and boomerangs, Andy's creations can be recognised by his ability to work with the wood's natural shapes and his intricate line work.
