First edition. Painting has become a powerful vehicle for the transmission of a culture: the myths, stories and practices reverenced by particular groups are encoded in the images in paint on boards and canvases to be revealed in layers to those who can see. This book is about those images, the immediacy of their impact as works of art, their meanings as expression of the deep and abiding spirituality of the Aboriginal peoples. The images, even in reproduction, entice, invite and sometimes confront, for they express a way of life and a value system alien to the Western ones. Yet many are powerful works of art able to stand alongside the great artists expressions of this century." pp. 151 #241115
