Australian rock art

Linden Langdon, a printmaker living in Tasmania, has chimed in with a lovely comment on last week’s post Anniversary & Rocks. She writes: “I have put together a flash file of a few photos my mum has taken while she has been travelling in the outback (Australia), which I thought you may be interested in seeing. It is always so stunning to see such similarities and also diversity in such ancient art work – no internet to let each other know what they were doing!”

So over to her blog I went, as I do almost daily, to read about her family’s interest in rocks and rock art (February 8, 2005)* and Linden’s kind mention of my blog. The Flash presentation of Outback Australian rock art is beautiful! Thank you, Linden, to both you and your mom for sharing, and for the compliments!

One of the very great pleasures of blogging for me are the interesting people who have written to me from around the world and shared their similar interests and sometimes their own research and photos, like Linden has today, and also Vyacheslav Mizin of St. Petersburg, Russia. The world has shrunk indeed.

I haven’t really researched Australia’s Rock Art yet, but here are a few links that I have bookmarked if you are interested. If any readers have suggestions and would like to share them, I can add them to the list.

The Bradshaw Foundation has been mentioned before for their excellent work around the world. Check out the “Bradshaw Paintings” for Australia’s art.

*Linden no longer has this blog. She can be found here but the above links no longer exist, sadly.
