about this item

Colouring Country features full-color reproductions of 42 superb Indigenous artworks, each accompanied by a brief description of its context and meaning within Aboriginal culture, together with a coloring-in template for each work. In Indigenous artmaking, the symbols, and the stories behind them, are the maps, the clues, to observing the Law, and living life in harmony with the elements and the cosmos. The rhythm of concentric dotted circles, linear motifs of game and flora, and lithe human forms illustrate life in balance with the majesty of nature. The images in Colouring Country are from the Balarinji Art & Design Archive, held by the National Museum of Australia, Canberra.
