Key themes: Ned Kelly the Legendary Australian bushranger (outlaw) who died after a gunfight with the Melbourne Police. What made him a top bloke though was that he planned his last stand and invited the whole town of Glenrowan to the pub to have a drink on him in safety, while Ned and his boys shot it out with the pol-ice. He was hanged in 1880.
Did you know? The governor particularly spiteful towards old Ned. Legend has it he used Ned’s head as a paperweight in the Old Melbourne Gaol.
Description: portrait of Ned Kelly with a gun in one hand and a rose in the other. He’s wearing a suit of homemade armour in which he had his last stand with the police.
Artist nailed it?
