Description:

Wonderful depiction of a Mornington island Ceremony by an important Australian Artist. Dick Roughsey was the inaugural chairman of the Aboriginal Arts board from 1973 until 1975. His early works on bark are hard to find. This example does have condition problems with a longitudinal crack and loss of pigments as seen in the photo.  It is however also dirt cheap for an original artwork by this artist
