German translation of Aboriginal Art by Wally Caruana.
This lively and comprehensive survey has established itself as a superlative introduction to the full diversity of Aboriginal art, and showcases work by Australia's indigenous artists from all parts of the continent. Practising the world's longest continuous art tradition, stretching back some fifty millennia, Aboriginal artists have worked in a variety of contexts, from the sacred realm of ceremony to more public spheres, and in media that include painting, sculpture, engraving, constructions, weaving, and - most recently - photography, printmaking and textile design. Widely sought after, Aboriginal art has now taken its place in the collections of museums and galleries world-wide, and its present-day popularity testifies to its lasting dynamism and vitality. this revised edition contains over twenty new illustrations and updated information covering the most recent developments in this thriving field.
