The Banksia Men at Neutral Bay. Do they remind you of anyone?

The side of a building facing a square is painted with a mural from the May Gibbs books about Snugglepot and Cuddlepie. The mural shows two Banksia Men (villains, shaped as dark brown banksia pods with arms, legs and evil eyes). One lurks like a spider on a tree branch and another, glancing back the way it’s come, runs with a helpless gumnut baby clutched in its hand, dangling by its legs. Snugglepot and Cuddlepie look down from a leaf in horror. A real tree grows in front of the wall,and there are bike stands.
