Aboriginal Art Painting by Major Indigenous Artist From Central Australia For Sale At 23% Discount

Aboriginal art paintings by one of Australia’s major Aboriginal artists, namely Alice Napanangka Kelly ( nee Granites ), are universally aesthetic and symbolically powerful works of art that are highly sought after by Indigenous art collectors and art connoisseurs around the world. Australia Gift Shop’s Aboriginal Art Gallery is now offering a classic Alice Napanangka original acrylic on canvas at the generously reduced price of 23 percent below list price.

Aboriginal Art Painting For Sale At Generous 23% Discount : Alice Napanangka Granites - Bush Vines

Aboriginal Art Painting For Sale At Generous 23% Discount : Alice Napanangka Granites – Bush Vines

The painting is titled “Bush Vines”. The artist paints this natural vegetation because according to traditional tribal rights and responsibilities, they are part of her sacred responsibility or what could be referred to as her tribal guardianship or one of her dreamings. An Australian Aboriginal dreaming is conceptually parallel to a totem in North American native cultures.

Alice Napanangka Granites was born in the bush at Mt Allan cattle station in 1958. The cattle station, which is now called Yuelamu, is Aboriginal owned and run. It is about 250 kms North-West of Alice Springs in the Western Desert of the Northern Territory in Central Australia. She is of the Warlpiri tribe andcontinues to live in the Northern Territory in nearby Yuendumu and has painted for Warlukurlangu Artists since 1998. Bush vines in the context of women’s tribal ceremonies relate to her dreaming and the focal point of her art.

The dimensions of the canvas are approximately 51cm x 49cm with the actual painted area centred within the canvas being 42cm x 40cm. This work of art is acrylic on canvas, while in specific terms, the medium employed is 12-ounce double- primed cotton canvas. The artwork comes unstretched. When this painting is taken to a local picture framer, the framing job can easily be done without losing any part of the painted work, so there will be no disappointment, only satisfaction. This is because the canvas of this painting (as indicated by the dimensions given above) has an approximate 4.5cm border to allow for framing or wood mounting.

This Aboriginal art painting is in excellent condition and signed on the back by the artist. It was completed in 2008. A photo of the artist holding her painting plus a Certificate of Authenticity accompanies the artwork.

Delivery is free of charge – both within Australia and Overseas.

Comments Off on Australian Themed Gifts For Men From Australia Gift Shop

Australian Themed Gifts For Men From Australia Gift Shop

Gifts For Men Featuring Australian Themes ” was the first flash of a title for this blog post. Luckily, I realised that the men don’t need to be distinctively Aussie, but men are the intended recipients for these gifts which are thematically and essentially Australian in character. In fact, Australia Gift Shop has a ripper range of Australian gifts for men.

Opals are gems that are distinctively Australian. On the 28th of July, 1994, Opal was declared Australia’s National Gemstone. Over 90 per cent of the world’s precious opal is from Australia. Opal is a semi-precious stone that is considered to be an Australian gift to the world. Opal Watches are timeless Australian gifts for men for all occasions.

In fact, because each opal watch is packaged in a sleek, black gift box and available in both ladies and gents designs, they are on target as men’s and women’s gifts for all occasions. They are suitable to present as birthday gifts, anniversary gifts, wedding gifts (in pairs), Christmas gifts, corporate gifts, graduation gifts and thankyou gifts or gifts of appreciation.

Australian Opal Watch from Australia Gift Shop : Australis Opal Watches are popular gifts for men, gifts for women, anniversary gifts, birthday gifts and gifts for all occasions.

An Aboriginal art watch is another one of the distinctively Australian gifts for men. These wrist watches are unique, handsome and functional works of art. Each watch is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity confirming the Aboriginality of the Indigenous artist.

Australia Gift Shop offers a choice of seven different Indigenous art designs in the Aboriginal Art Watches of the Australian Outback Artist Watch Series. These timepieces include a 12-month warranty and are gift packaged in a clear, see-through plastic gift box. This gift presentation includes a full colour bookmark featuring the Aboriginal artist’s picture and profile, and a brief description of the individual watch painting.

There is a wide selection of stylish Aussie gifts for men from outside Australia – whether friends or family living abroad or business associates from overseas. These gifts include boomerangs hand-painted by Aboriginal artists, boxed boomerangs with display stands and a variety of colourful Aboriginal artefacts through to top shelf works of art.

These high quality, gallery artworks are Aboriginal art paintings for collectors and corporate investors, specifically, unframed acrylic paintings on unstretched canvas, painted by highly-renowned, major Aboriginal artists such as Gloria Petyarre, Caroline Numina, Louise Numina and Mitjili Naparrula. Each artwork is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity and a photo of the artist holding her painting.

Australia Gift Shop offers some wonderful small gifts for men that perfectly complement any one of the more substantial presents mentioned above. Milk chocolate, dark chocolate or honey roasted Australian Macadamia Nuts in a resealable pouchcertainly provide a delicious gift accompaniment. An Aboriginal Art Mouse Pad or an Aboriginal Art Drink Holder or Stubby Holder also serve as excellent complementary presents to complete the gift presentation.

Comments Off on Australia Gift Shop, Australian Gifts and the Tale of the Kangaroo

Australia Gift Shop, Australian Gifts and the Tale of the Kangaroo

As you will soon realise, the irony of this story is that Australia Gift Shop sells Australian gifts, many of which feature the very-Aussie image of a kangaroo. In fact, we presently have 41 different product lines of Aussie gifts featuring the image of a kangaroo, as well as some small timber figurine of kangaroo hand-painted with Aboriginal art by Australian Aboriginal artists in Sydney.

By the way, 93% of these Australia Gift Shop gifts representing Australia are made in Australia. This percentage is rising because our business is moving towards solely and totally Australian-made Australiana / Aussie gift and corporate gift products. Our Aboriginal art products are 100% Australian-made, except for the Aboriginal Art Watches – whose movement components are made in Japan, and the Aboriginal Art Hip Flasks (currently being phased out) – which, under their Indigenous art canvas, are metal flasks made in China.

So let’s get on with the tale of the kangaroo. There is a vacant lot of about 200 acres just around the corner from Australia Gift Shop. It was formerly a sugar cane field in years gone by. After the cane was cleared just over 10 years ago, a small mob of kangaroos began frequenting this open grassy area.

Development continued in the streets adjoining the grassland and traffic increased in leaps and bounds because of a booming population in the seaside resort that is about 4 kilometres east of the vacant lot. As a result of the first 5 or 6 years of these changes (up until 2009), we often did not see a kangaroo for several days when we passed by the grassland. They would be hiding around the hill in the scrubby bushland. Sadly, some had also been hit by cars.

However, in 2009 and 2010, there were often three or four kangaroos grazing in the middle of the grassland in the morning. It warmed our kids’ hearts (and ours) when a few roos were spotted basking in the early morning sun in the middle of the vacant lot.

When you click on this image of a big kangaroo and a little roo, you will see a baby kangaroo at Australia Gift Shop on Pinterest

At that time, plans for the construction of a residential estate on the vacant lot were rejected by the council. By late 2010, the herbivorous marsupials had become confined to the small area of nearby scrubland.

Basically, it will be the beginning of the end for the local kangaroo mob when a vegetable and small crops farm was re-established on the parcel of land. We have not seen any kangas there for the last three to four years.

The pace of development is much faster than the hopping of any of our native kangaroos and they are unable to cope with the disorientation of resettlement elsewhere in the wild.

If grass is plentiful, they can survive in selectively built-up areas. We recently met quite a few of them hanging out in the grounds of the students’ residential college at the university in Rockhampton, a nearby city here in Queensland. The mob at the uni reminded us of the street gangs of monkeys that hang out in the botanical gardens in Penang in Malaysia.

The marsupials don’t pursue you for peanuts or bananas like the aggressive, street-wise simians in the beautiful Malaysian gardens. Nonetheless, kangaroos can be cheeky. We certainly witnessed evidence of this fact at Australia Zoo on the Sunshine Coast just south of here. It is the zoo where the late Steve Irwin, the Australian Crocodile Hunter, was based.

With an inner chuckle, I’m recalling the time at Australia Zoo about a decade ago when a big kangaroo sized up our youngest son, hopped with deliberation over to him and pushed him over in a daring stroke of bravado. The big grey female then simply turned away, before sedately and quietly hopping away with an imperceptible smile on its face.

Aboriginal Art Painting by Renowned Artist From Utopia For Sale At Huge Discount

Aboriginal art paintings by one of Australia’s major Indigenous artists, namely Caroline Numina Pananka, are beautiful and powerful works of art that are highly coveted by Indigenous art collectors and art lovers around the world. Australia Gift Shop’s Aboriginal Art Gallery is now offering a classic Caroline Numina original acrylic on canvas at the seriously reduced price of 23 percent below list price.

Aboriginal Art Painting For Sale At Huge 23% Discount : Caroline Numina Pananka from Utopia - Kurrajong Bush Medicine Leaves - Blue

Aboriginal Art Painting For Sale At Huge 23% Discount : Caroline Numina Pananka from Utopia – Kurrajong Bush Medicine Leaves – Blue

The painting is titled “Kurrajong Bush Medicine Leaves – Blue”. The artist paints these medicinal leaves because according to traditional tribal rights and responsibilities, they are part of her dreamings or what could be referred to as her tribal guardianship – a sacred responsibility. An Australian Aboriginal dreaming is analagous to a totem in North American native cultures.

Caroline Numina was born in Utopia in the Central Eastern Desert of the Northern Territory in Central Australia. Utopia is famous for its numerous Aboriginal women artists who became nationally and internationally renowned, such as Caroline’s famously artistic aunties, Gloria Petyarre and Kathleen Petyarre. Caroline Numina is now based in Darwin but visits her traditional lands regularly.

The dimensions of the canvas are 123cm x 39.5cm. The artwork is acrylic on canvas, with the specific medium being 12-ounce double- primed cotton canvas. The work of art comes unstretched.

When this painting is taken to a local picture framer, the framing job can easily be done without the loss of any of the painted work, so there will be no disappointment, only satisfaction. This is because the canvas of this painting has an approximate 5cm border to allow for framing or wood mounting. The border exists due to the actual painted area centred within the canvas being approximately 113cm x 29.5cm.

This Aboriginal art painting was completed in 2008. It is in excellent condition and signed on the back by the artist.

A Certificate of Authenticity accompanies the artwork and is included with a photo of the artist holding her painting.

Delivery is free of charge – both within Australia and Overseas.

Comments Off on Aboriginal Art of Australia – Cultural Artifacts or Contemporary Art?

Aboriginal Art of Australia – Cultural Artifacts or Contemporary Art?

Australian Aboriginal art that is created in our contemporary era is viewed collectively as cultural artifacts or contemporary art or a combination of both.

The Aboriginal Art Movement of the late 20th Century and early 21st Century is the most recent Modern Western Art Movement to produce an intriguing array of artworks to grace the exhibitions of art galleries, the halls of company boardrooms, corporate and hotel foyers and the homes, shops and offices of ardent collectors, investors, dealers and art connoisseurs around the world.

Aboriginal Art Gallery @ Australia Gift Shop offers paintings online by major Aboriginal artists, such as this beautiful work by Caroline Numina.

Aboriginal artists are tribal guardians of the mythical Dreamtime. The Dreamtime was the time of creation when ancestral spirits walked the earth. Their paintings represent Dreamings, which are totemic and narrative aspects of this Dreamtime. Spirits and stories are represented in the works of Aboriginal artists through a broad vocabulary of symbols and highly-stylized images. They employ this imagery as stewards of tribal knowledge and stories – veritable keepers of ancient tribal wisdom and an ostensibly pre-historic culture. Each great contemporary Indigenous artist is like a sphinx in the desert, standing guard over a sort of inner sanctum containing the ark of their covenant with the Dreamtime spirits.

Contemporary Aboriginal art media is today’s platform for preserving long-past spiritual life and tribal culture, analogous to glowing, transparent amber preserving and displaying life forms we would otherwise never have known existed in the distant past.

The original art media used for Aboriginal art included the walls of caves, rock faces, the desert sand, human bodies, wooden weapons and tree bark. Painting on canvas was introduced by a Caucasian school teacher to Aboriginal tribesmen in Papunya Tula in the Western Desert of Australia’s Northern Territory in 1972.

After that, the use of batik on cloth was introduced to the women of the Aboriginal communities in the Utopia region. Gloria Petyarre was one of these artists. They also eventually took to painting on canvas. Some make artistic and sometimes politically confrontational videos, while others paint or create art designs for tableware, homeware, fashion accessories and even jumbo jets.  

Within their cultural context, their paintings are expressions of the Dreamings.

Without their cultural context, their paintings are inspired works which capture human archetypal forms and images that speak with a universal voice about feelings, moods and atmospheres from deep within our dreams and before our first childhood memories.

Whether viewed as sacred cultural artifacts of anthropological interest or purely as works of contemporary art, Aboriginal art paintings by the major artists in our gallery have appreciating and substantial value both as uniquely transcendent décor and investment art collector pieces.

Comments Off on Aboriginal Art is Where Lightning Strikes

Aboriginal Art is Where Lightning Strikes

Aboriginal art paintings of power and authenticity are born out of interaction between spiritual intangibles and the touch of Indigenous humankind. Human creativity and Dreamtime creation intersect and connect to establish a current of inspiration that indelibly burns a surface with a poignant image.

Aboriginal Art Paintings by major Australian Indigenous Artists are for sale online from Australia Gift Shop's Aboriginal Art Gallery for Collectors, Investors and as High-End Corporate Gifts.

Aboriginal Art Products, Paintings and Artifacts are resplendent in their colourful and creative artwork at Australia Gift Shop – located at the Red Centre of this map of the world.

The artwork is that image and the canvas or artefact / artifact is that surface where a force both within and beyond nature is harnessed like electricity as it is captured by the Aboriginal artist. The Dreamtime symbolism strikes with a searing flash that brands its likeness onto a canvas to manifest a sacred object known as an Aboriginal art painting 

According to Australian Aboriginal mythology, the earth was created during the Dreamtime when the spirit ancestors became the natural features of the landscape, sacred ground. In Aboriginal art, there is significant focus on the stories of the Dreamtime, the ancestral spirits and the sacred land.

Increasing sophistication and cultural eclecticism in the use of artistic skills and techniques by Indigenous artists in Australia, has clearly also resulted in many works of Aboriginal art that are beyond sacred. By this, I mean that they are not solely anthropological wonders – they are aesthetic gifts and great works of art in their own right.

Aboriginal art paintings on canvas, boomerangs and other Aboriginal artifacts available at Australia Gift Shop are all created in Australia and painted by Aboriginal artists or printed with Aboriginal art designs created by Australian Indigenous artists.

Australia Gift Shop only sells Aboriginal art paintings and artefacts that are truly authentic Aboriginal art.  

To explore true blue authentic Aboriginal art, begin browsing product displays in our online gift shop at www.australiagift.com.au .

Customers can either place an order through our online shopping cart or transact their purchase over the phone with their MasterCard or Visa credit card or debit card.

Australian gifts that you wish to present as memorable corporate gifts do not come better than the new Australis Boulder Opal Watches at Australia Gift Shop at http://www.australiagift.com.au/watches-australian-opal-watch.php . Each of these stylish timepieces features a stunning play of colour from a face of boulder opal within an 18 carat gold-plated case that houses a Swiss quartz movement.

Boulder Opal is unique to Australia. It was discovered in 1873. Boulder opal is the term used to describe precious opal that has formed as part of ironstone boulders (or rocks) by impregnating the rock and in-filling cracks and cavities. Opals are believed to bring good luck and happiness to those fortunate enough to wear them.

As a supplier of distinctively Australian corporate gifts that are ready to give, Australia Gift Shop stocks gift-boxed, opal-faced wrist watches featuring Australian boulder opal directly from Australis Gems. These quality Swiss movement watches truly capture the essence of Australia’s magnificent landscape of colours. Aside from incorporating Australia’s striking national gemstone, each wrist watch is presented in a solid, black gift box and includes a 12 month International Warranty.

An Opal Watch will be greatly appreciated as a stylish corporate gift and is unique as a memento of Australia, while serving as an up-market designer accessory which is both functional and attractive.

Each timepiece has a robust 18ct gold plated watch case, water resistant construction and mineral crystal glass. “Australis” is printed in gold letters on the dial (or face), while the case back is etched with a map of Australia.
