Bob Bilinyarra Painting

Aboriginal bark painting by Bob Bilinyarra

Locality: Central Arnhem Land Northern Territory Australia

Artist: Bob bilingyarra

Circa: 1980’s

Length: 50.5 cm

Description:

This wonderful bark painting was recovered by a picker in a New Zealand Opportunity shop. It is virtually identical to the one in the  Museum of Contemporary Arts collection on page 92 of the book: They are meditating: Bark paintings from the MCA’s Arnotts collection. It depicts a circumcision ceremony which was central to male initiation into manhood. I love the looseness of the figures and the sense of dancing movement

Price: $1650
