Latest acquisition

An incised image of a wanjina spirit by celebrated Kimberley artist Alec Mingelmanganu. Isn't he cute?

Would love to go to the Kimberley one day to see actual rock paintings of these mysterious spirit beings.

Wanjina ROCKS!
I particularly like the depiction of evanescence of the body.
Irresistible. Congratulations.

Thanks Ann. Monumental canvases by the same artist nowadays command huge sums of money (> 100K) so it's nice to be able to afford one of his pieces (albeit at a much smaller scale).
