Dendroglyphs: Carved Country
Carved trees dendroglyphs are powerful markers of Aboriginal occupation of the land and of the distinct and distinctive visual style of the Wiradjuri and Gamilaroi peoples. The practice of carving elaborate designs into trees is common in only a small part of Australia, and these trees, now rare and closely held by local communities, are striking testaments of continued culture.
The exhibition is supplemented by a commissioned artwork from local Aboriginal artist Paris Norton. This is a WPCC exhibition.
