Vintage souvenir in Mulga wood. It would seem to be the work of a non-indigenous artist. Assume nothing.
Now days,the Aborigines have been creating works of art for the market place and can be seen painting in studio or retail space in central Australia, women in particular, where trendy and outstanding traditional works are seen in a variety of mediums. Painting are very appealing.
It was notable to find the aborigines employed in the tourist village and good to be in the same space as them for myself who normally has very little contact. In one other town less positive aspects were apparent.
