“In 1947 a group of senior Aboriginal leaders and bark painters in Yirrkala in Australia’s north-east Arnhem Land collaborated with anthropologists Ronald and Catherine Berndt to document the intricacies of their culture and history.  The result was the Yirrkala drawings, a collection of over 360 crayon drawings on butcher’s paper.
Dynamic, vivid and unlike any other Indigenous Australian art, this is the first comprehensive publication of these magnificent drawings.  Accompanied by insightful essays and interviews with the artist’s descendants, this book reveals the enduring power of this land and its people.”
