Aboriginal Corporate Gifts

Aboriginal corporate gifts at Australia Gift Shop are Australian gifts, in that they are made in Australia, while also being Aboriginal gifts, in that they display authentic Aboriginal art and Indigenous art designs.

Australia Gift Shop specialises in Aboriginal art gifts and Australian gift products that are ideal as conference gifts, corporate gifts and international business gift offerings. Event professionals make up a large portion of this Aussie gift store’s regular clients. International business events held in Australia call for gift objects that are unique to Australia, distinctively and iconically Australian and aesthetically powerful as mementos in terms of their beauty and visual impact.

10” Boxed Boomerang with custom engraved plaque and foil printed logo on lid of gift box. One of an order of hundreds of these bespoke corporate gift boomerangs presented to delegates at an international business conference held in Sydney.

Aboriginal art products and Aboriginal artifacts tick all the above boxes. Experienced Aussie event managers and events industry professionals who plan and organise international business events in Australia, understand the distinct image and perceptions of Australia in the global arena. This is why they so frequently choose Australian corporate gifts that feature Aboriginal art or that are actually unique cultural objects, such as Aboriginal artefacts.

Of course, stylish and professional presentation is a salient requirement for any corporate gift item. So Australia Gift Shop pays particular attention to the gift boxes and engraving (if required) used to present gifts that engender pride in the giver while expressing warm and memorable appreciation to the receiver.

Australia Gift Shop Presents Lots of Ideas for Aboriginal Art Corporate Gifts

Australia Gift Shop offers an extensive range of stylish Aboriginal art products that are ideal as corporate gifts.

Aboriginal art corporate gift ideas vary from cultural Indigenous artefacts ( such as clap sticks and boomerangs, gift-boxed with timber display stands ), through to Aboriginal art watches and hand-crafted metal artwork tableware such as plates, fruit bowls and nut bowls.

Sets of place mats / table mats and drink coasters featuring Aboriginal art designs are perennially popular as gifts in corporate settings. Office décor such as framed Aboriginal art paintings and wooden handpainted trinket boxes have proven to be effective and expressive tokens of appreciation as gifts to overseas at business events and corporate conferences.

The latter products include boomerang-shaped timber trinket boxes or jewellery boxes that are handpainted by Aboriginal artists. The wooden trinket boxes in the shape of a small boomerang are extremely popular as hotel room gifts for foreign guests visiting Australia on a business trip to attend an industry conference or any manner of corporate event.

Comments Off on Aboriginal Art Sale of Paintings by Major Australian Indigenous Artists from Utopia

Aboriginal Art Sale of Paintings by Major Australian Indigenous Artists from Utopia

Aboriginal art by recognised and renowned Australian Indigenous artists now has a reduced market value compared with the previous decade. This is a healthy market correction to counter-balance considerable marketing hype and price bubbles that plagued the Aboriginal art industry prior to 2008 / 2009.

Australia Gift Shop‘s prices for Aboriginal art for collectors and investors have been permanently adjusted in accordance with the healthy market correction. In fact, all collectible artworks by major Aboriginal artists from artistically-illustrious Utopia in Australia’s Northern territory ( NT ) have been reduced to half-price compared with prices for comparable (and sometimes exactly the same) artworks prior to the Global Financial Crisis ( GFC ).

Australian Aboriginal Art Sale of Paintings by Major Artists from Utopia : Now Online at Australia Gift Shop

Australian Aboriginal Art Sale of Paintings by Major Artists from Utopia : Now Online at Australia Gift Shop

Comparatively highly sought-after paintings by renowned artists from Utopia, such as Gloria Petyarre, Caroline Numina and Louise Numina, are all for sale at half price. All paintings are acrylic on canvas, unframed.

Each painting is accompanied by a photograph of the artist holding their artwork plus a Certificate of Authenticity. This is crucial information for any collector, investor, interior designer and/or lover of beautiful works of art. All of these potential buyers should understandably be aware of the salience of authenticity in relation to art, in general, and to Indigenous art and Australian Aboriginal art, specifically.

Gloria Petyarre, one of the greatest Aboriginal artists from Utopia, painted this artwork in 2008. She is the niece of Emily Kame Kngwarreye, whose “Earth Creation” is a million dollar work of Aboriginal art.

Gloria Petyarre, one of the greatest Aboriginal artists from Utopia, painted this artwork in 2008. She is the niece of Emily Kame Kngwarreye, whose “Earth Creation” is a million dollar work of Aboriginal art.

All the paintings from Utopia offered by Australia Gift Shop include one of the artist’s Dreamings (or tribal responsibilities). In relation to the particular artworks on offer, the subject of each relevant Dreaming is Bush Medicine Leaves. So it is no coincidence that every one of the artists is an Aboriginal woman because, as nomadic hunter-gatherers, the men were the hunters, while gathering was the social role of women in the traditional tribal setting. Indigenous women were responsible for gathering the bush tucker (food) and medicinal leaves.

Tribal lore in stories, traditional law and social protocol engender great and abiding respect due to the belief that they had been passed down from god-like ancestors or spirits during the Dreamtime – the time of creation. It follows that social roles and responsibilities (such as the gathering of Bush Medicine Leaves) have powerful spiritual, and even supernatural significance. These authentic Aboriginal art paintings have this sacred element of a hunter-gatherer society, while also clearly exhibiting aesthetic qualities that are beyond sacred. Simply put – they are beautiful; they have a visceral magnetism beyond the sacred.

Aboriginal Art Tableware for a Dinner Party Under the Stars of the Southern Cross

Aboriginal art tableware sets, including place mats and drink coasters, provide for an interesting setting in which to appreciate the unique Indigenous art of Australia. Dinner guests’ eyes can feast on aesthetic wonders and sacred geometry while dinner guests themselves feast on food and drink.

The dinner party atmosphere becomes conducive to inspired conversation as the topics flitter in the night light. Sense the glow of a dancing corroboree fire, lit by the falling stars of the Southern Cross. A jabiru struts in the moonlight as a frilly necked lizard scuttles in the dust. A kangaroo hops past the gum trees, watched by pairs of eyes between the leaves. Indigenous eyes, dreamy and keen and curious, reflect the shining constellation to produce the effect of a Van Gogh matured by a walkabout for seventy thousand years. The koala and the Australian Aborigine gathering bush tucker let the kangaroo continue on a journey to the billabong watering hole.

Australia is the land under the Southern Cross, manifested by ancestors who have become the land and the sky. These spirits transformed into country during the Dreamtime, the time of creation. We can feel our own prosaic descendancy within an all-encompassing sanctity. As we pass the wine and butter the damper, it’s possible to catch a fleeting glimpse of the desert. Out of the corner of your eye you perceive a goanna in a brief desert meeting with a passing kangaroo.
