Early Crocker Island Bark painting Attributed to Namundja Wanurr for sale

Object type: Bark Painting

Locality: Crocker island

Artist: Attributed to Namundja Wanurr

Circa: 1960

Dimensions: 78cm X 44cm

Description:

This powerful early aboriginal bark has two wonderfully simple but outstanding figures. It is very similar to a work called Namarnde frolicking sold at sothebys London. Both figures have their sex clearly shown indicating it was made prior to missionary influence and is similar to rock paintings. It is likely that this bark was commissioned by an anthropologist in the 1960’s. The bark does need a professional clean as it has dust ingrained into it.
