Oh wow, I mean it looks amazing, and you have clearly created your own design which is influenced by the style (rather than copying one), v.good, but coming from Australia I'd be terrified to make something like this.
I can't speak for other Australians here, but I'm fairly cautious of basing artworks on indigenous/cultural/sacred objects.
For example, Aboriginal intellectual property is quite an issue here:
(to clarify: I am not suggesting you're breaching any kind of cultural copyright here, I'm just saying I'm particularly cautious re: Aus Indigenous art. My friend is a tattooist, who just happened to tattoo traditional art designs on Aboriginal people who requested them. She ended up getting hate mail and death threats from ignorant folk who accused her of misappropriating cultural heritage).
