Wood carving has always been an essential part of Aboriginal culture, lovingly whittled and decorated.
Wood carvings shaped like animals, were sometimes traded to Europeans for goods.
These beautiful representations of dreaming stories and Aboriginal lore are painted with such detail and used to pass on essential information about their country and customs.
Canvas & Paintings
Aboriginal art is centered around story telling. Originally many different Ochres were used to paint on rocks generally to convey important cultural stories through the generations and now on canvas for you to enjoy in your home.
Fiber art has been embedded in all aspects of Indigenous culture for thousands of years. Woven objects have been created for both sacred and essential purposes and now decorative reasons.
