Aboriginal cave paintings in rock shelter, Gwion Gwion rock art (formerly called Bradshaw)

Aboriginal cave paintings in rock shelter, Gwion Gwion rock art (formerly called Bradshaw). These dynamic line figures wearing ornaments and headdresses and carrying boomerangs and other weapons are believed to be the oldest figurative art in Australia. Some of the rock art in north-western Australia has yielded a minimum age in excess of 20 000 years. It is by far the oldest human art in the southern hemisphere and may be among the most ancient in the world. In this category are ant-like charcoal paintings now known as Gwion Gwion figures, like this one sealed by a silica desert varnish into the walls of a rock shelter. Modern Aborigines disclaim authorship of such art and say that it was done by Dreamtime spirits.Manning Gorge, Kimberley, Western Australia
