Groote Eylandt Morningstar bark painting
Lovely small bark painting from Groote Eylandt
Object type: Bark Painting
Locality: Groote Eylandt islands
Dimensions: 39 X 27
This small Groote Eylandt depicts a story I don’t recognize. The Morningstar is often related to the afterlife and maybe I have been looking at tribal art for to long but the lower design looks anthropomorphic to me. Like many early Groote Eylandt bark paintings it is quite small but i think is a lovely example.
