Sections on body painting, art from the central and western deserts and bark painting from Arnhem Land, highlight the extraordinary diversity that is and always has been a hallmark of Indigenous Australian art.

Indigenous Australian art today is recognised throughout Australia and the world for its strength and vitality. In her book Art, Land, Story, Christine Nicholls looks at some of the traditions this art has come from and emphasises the continuous links between Indigenous art, place and The Dreaming the central core of Indigenous law and religion.
