The north eastern tip of Australia’s Northern Territory including Kakadu National Park is known as Arnhem Land. It was set aside as an aboriginal reserve of the Yolngu people in 1931. The relative isolation has ensured the people’s strong connection with tradition and culture. With permission of the local land council, visitors can cross the East Alligator River and travel under strict guidelines.
An aboriginal guide led a small group of us to this magnificent rock art site. Arnhem art is characterised by representations of spirit entities, records of daily life and magnificent X-ray views of the local fauna hunted for food, turtles, barramundi, kangaroo.
This is my third “work of art” for the weekly photo challenge.
I live in sunny Brisbane, Australia. My love of good food drives me as a cook, a reader, a traveller, an artist and but mostly as an eater.
I cooked professionally for many years but have no formal training. Simply guided by a love of eating good food, respect for ingredients and an abhorrence of artificial additives, I cook instinctively applying the technical know how acquired by experience.
I hope you enjoy what I share
