Painted Land
Australian Aboriginal Art

May 27 2014

The art of the Australian native people is one of the oldest artistic traditions alive. This selection shows paintings from the mid-fifties until now by artists from the Arnhem Land region in Northern Australia.

I think the deeper meaning of the depicted myths is impossible to decode for an outsider. But even the contemplation on an outer level makes us feel their underlying unity with the land and their ancestors.
