At last! A book showcasing the Aboriginal rock art of Western Australia's Burrup Peninsula.
Western Australia contains some of the oldest, most prolific, and most spectacular rock art in the world. Some of the art probably dates from about 40,000 years ago, and much dates from around the last ice age which peaked 20,000 years ago.
On the Australian Heritage-listed Burrup Peninsula and surrounding islands there are an estimated one million motifs carved into the rocks.
This lavishly illustrated 516-page book has more than 600 images of this amazing art.
