Billabong

by Chris' Landscape Images Of Australia

Framed Art Print


DESCRIPTION

Choose from a variety of frame styles, colors and sizes to compliment your favorite Society6 gallery, or fine art print - made ready to hang. Fine-crafted from solid woods, premium shatterproof acrylic protects the face of the art print, while an acid free dust cover on the back provides a custom finish. All framed art prints include wall hanging hardware.

Billabong is an Australian English word meaning a small lake, a section of still water adjacent to a river, cut off by a change in the watercourse. Billabongs are usually formed when the path of a creek or river changes, leaving the former branch with a dead end. Billabongs, reflecting the arid Australian climate in which these "dead rivers" are found, fill with water seasonally and are dry for a greater part of the year.

The word is most likely derived from the indigenous Wiradjuri term bilabaŋ. As the lake/pond kept water longer than parts of the river, it was important to the Aboriginal people to name these areas.
