Aboriginal Art on Canvas Prints
Tree Animals in X-Ray

Canvas prints of traditional Aboriginal art by Leslie Nawirridj, depicting the possums, sugar gliders and fruit bats which are all animals of the trees in the Kunwinjku Aboriginal homelands in Western Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory of Australia.
This Aboriginal animal art is beautifully presented in "x-ray".
X-ray art is the oldest artform in the world.

Leslie Nawirridj is painting in the tradition passed down through countless generations from his ancestors. The first artists painted Aboriginal x-ray art on the rocks of Western Arnhem Land thousands of years ago. This was the first Australian art.

These images feature a unique Kunwinjku Aboriginal art technique called "rarrk". The rarrk is the fine-line cross-hatching radiating out from the centre of each animal and comes from Kunwinjku Aboriginal ceremonial painting. Leslie Nawirridj is especially skilled at producing very fine rarrk, having practised for many years. The rarrk is important to show the moiety of the artist, and gives the painting its ceremonial power.
