Ned Kelly

I had heard of Ned Kelly before I moved to Sydney but didn't appreciate how iconic he is in Australia until I had spent some time here and seen the paintings by Sidney Nolan featuring his famous homemade armour.

Robert Plumb make a whole family of Kelly inspired mailboxes. My personal favourite is 'Ned' himself pictured below.
