Old Masters

Artworks by the Old Masters

Aboriginal Dreamings Gallery respects Aboriginal protocol and abides by traditional customs regarding the display of artworks by deceased artists. In traditional Australian Aboriginal lore, it is customary to refrain from using the name of a deceased person. A generic word Kumanjayi may be substituted in place of the deceased person’s name. It is also customary to remove artworks of recently deceased artists from public display and to refrain from showing photographs of the deceased.

The artworks displayed in this section, by the Old Masters - artists who have passed away, are shown with the greatest respect, only after the mourning period is over. (A mourning period may continue for up to one year or in some cases longer.)
