Description

This extraordinary selection of objects showcases the beauty and knowledge embodied in works of art and everyday life from Indigenous Australia. Published to accompany the first major UK exhibition on Indigenous Australia, this ground breaking new publication explores the profound impact and legacy of colonialism, the nature of collecting and the changing meaning of objects now in the collection of the British Museum. The encounters between Indigenous peoples and colonists were complex and nuanced, and contemporary Australian society is still dealing with this legacy, trying to transform or reconcile different worldviews.
