Description

He was a bushy through and through, the apple of his mother’s eye, he took from the rich and gave to the poor, not once did he ask for anything more. You cannot catch me, or find me for I am this country’s best kept secret.

Australia use to have 6,000 bush rangers that were the descendants of convicts. This bush ranger period spanned 100 years. Many of the convicts transported from England were into highway robbery in the traditional sense of English highway robbers such as Robin Hood or Dick Turpin. They brought the habit from England to the new colony. The idea of Robin Hood one imagines a knight in shining armour, so a model of sorts emulated. There were so many bush ranger characters you come across travelling around Australia. There was one who was a Madagascan bush ranger all of 7ft tall called John Caesar who got together an indigenous bush gang, but they eventually killed him, and another called Matt Gabbitt who ran out of food and proceeded to eat his bush gang one at a time. So, the stories are amazing about the bush rangers. So, the picture shows the kangaroo who is Australian on the horse with no head. The horse is as wild as the kangaroo and the money bags means gold. Apparently, bush rangers were a wild bunch and dangerous hence the gun. The helmet as I previously said to emulate the ideas from the old country although the thought of a kangaroo on a horse with a gun and a truck load of money would terrify anybody.
