When Gilles Bernadoff agreed to host the Object Stories workshops in Braidwood last month he didn't count on having to be a part of the creative process himself.

However, both Gilles and his wife Olivia agreed to participate in creating content for Object Stories by choosing, and discussing, one item from the hundreds of objects they own.

They chose this dusty old relic, and just for the record we did dust it off but the dust was entrenched into every crevice so what you see is what you get.

As you'll hear in the slideshow this object de art is a mystery object.

The Bernadoff's don't know who carved it and the person who gave it to them thought that perhaps the carver was French, but they didn't know for sure.

It's a stunning piece of Australian folk art made, we guess, in the 1930s.

Carved from one piece of wood the frame contains a kangaroo and an emu, an abundance of native flora and the iconic Harbour Bridge.

Can you tell us anything more about this object?
What's its story?
