Accompanying a major touring exhibition of the same name, this elegant publication highlights the richness and breadth of contemporary Indigenous sculpture in Australia through the innovative work of 33 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists. All of the featured works are sculptural depictions of animals and are as diverse and dynamic in their materials and techniques as they are in their varied relationships to issues of place, identity, culture and survival. The exhibition's co-curators, Nicole Foreshew and Brian Parkes, have written major essays for the publication. In addition, 22 specialist writers and curators have contributed revealing profiles on each of the individual artists.
