Exploring the living traditions of the world’s oldest continuing art in all its stunning variety. Jennifer Isaacs shows how the art is a visual expression of Aboriginal religion but one which is constantly evolving through each artist: “Although the styles have altered, the symbols, themes and preoccupations of the artists have not.”

Covering the symbiotic relationship between culture and land, Australia’s Living Heritage was one of the earliest and still the most comprehensive book on this rich and complex culture; it covers rock art, body art, fibre and weaving, the Papunya painting movement with illustrations of the ground painting techniques,as well as over 100 photographs of early and beautiful artifacts,bark paintings and sculptures in National Collections
