ABORIGINAL ROCK ART ALONG THE KIMBERLEY COAST - WANDJINA ART

There are two distinctive forms of Aboriginal Art found in the sandstone caves and ledges along the Kimberley coast. The Wandjina art - the focus of this study, is closely associated with the living culture of present day Aboriginal people.The second form is known as Gwion, Gwion /Bradshaw Art. This form is the focus of the second title. The Wandjina Art is the more recent art. It has considerable importance to Aboriginal people who regard its presence and preservation as part of their guardianship role. By photographs take your students into the area and see the distinctive character of the Wandjina art. By comparing the Wandjina art with the much older Gwion, Gwion/Bradshaw Art you will find out why one form of art has sustained its importance and why the other form is dismissed as trivial and not worthy of attention.
