Traditional Aboriginal Animal Art by Leslie Nawirridj, depicting the kangaroo, echidna, crocodile and others native to the Arnhem Land country of the Kunwinjku Aboriginal people. Leslie is skilled in painting in x-ray, an ancient indigenous style of artwork begun by his ancestors thousands of years ago. The Kunwinjku ancestors painted in x-ray on the rocks of Western Arnhem Land.
The fine-line cross-hatching, called "rarrk", is from the Kunwinjku Aboriginal ceremonial painting. Leslie produces a high quality rarrk, with great accuracy and precision, which comes from many years of practising the technique.
