The Pankalangu Wardrobe is adorned with scales made from Queensland walnut and copper, two materials that blend in an absence of light, but when the light catches these copper scales the hulking form of this creature is defined by a glistening silhouette.


According to Western Arrernte story telling, pankalangu is a territorial being that lives in the scrub and is completely camouflaged in the desert and bush. Pankalangu can only move with the rain, and is made visible when the rain that falls on him is caught by the light, defining his form in a glistening silhouette.

Originally commissioned by Broached Commissions.
