Bulgra, King of Arremutta
AIA no A-ON 116
283 x 183 x 8; chain 435
Of all the gorgets in the Museum's collections this is the most modern in appearance and is the only one firmly dated. The inscription includes the date 1920. It is a sawn brass plate with an inscription and design very much in keeping with 1920s graphic art. Its style suggests it is the work of a graphic artist. The human-like eye and eyebrow on the emu and the kangaroo give the figures an engaging character.
No information about Bulgra or Arremutta has been uncovered. Arremutta may have been the County of Arrawatta in northern New South Wales:
Arrawatta, a county in the Eastern and Central Divisions of the colony ... Arrawatta Creek, a tributary of the Severn River, flowing through good agricultural land from Wellingrove to Warialda, near the junction of Strathbogie Road.
