Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Artwork
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have existed on the continent of Australia for tens of thousands of years. Their art and traditions are among the oldest and richest in human history.
This uniques Headsox collection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art highlights the diversity, richness and excellence of a living culture.
The designs, patterns and stories were taught to Indigenous Australians by the Ancestors and are reinforced and replicated through many creative forms: ritual, dance, song, body painting, rock engravings and paintings, and on domestic and ritual objects.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art is as alive today as it was thousands of years ago and is inseparable from everyday life.
