Dinkum Laughing Kookaburra
"Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree, merry merry king of the bush is he, laugh Kookaburra, laugh Kookaburra, gay your life must be." An oldie but a goldie - we all sang it in primary school and learned the special place which the Kookaburra holds in Australian culture. The Kookaburra embodies the qualities of being able to laugh at the world and yourself while at the same time being strong and unafraid of anything. Kookaburras are indeed kings of the bush and will famously take on a snake if necessary - no wonder we love and admire them.
This hand carved and painted figure captures the spirit and bring-it-on character of the Kookaburra perfectly, just looking at it you can hear that raucous, throaty laugh. Made from plantation Hoop Pine the Dinkum Laughing Kookaburra comes in a calico bag with accompanying information, perfect for gifting. The laughing model also has a more serious mate and the two make a handsome pair.
