Both the Barramundi and Long-necked Tortoise are based on traditional Aboriginal paintings from the Kakadu area of North-Western Australia. While the style is authentic, the colouring used is my own but similar in style to that which would have been used.

A similar Long-necked Tortoise rock painting from this area has recently been carbon dated to 7,000 years old.

As these are the first of a series on "Traditional Art" I cannot, at this stage, recommend others to make a set, however others will follow.

Please contact your nearest Australian Retail Outlet or Overseas Distributor (if not from Australia) if you wish to purchase this chart.
