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.
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.

by Comments Off on 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.
How can Aboriginal art tableware, placemat and coaster sets and other homeware featuring Indigenous art designs be purchased from Australia Gift Shop?

Aboriginal art paintings by a major Australian Aboriginal artist are highly coveted by Indigenous art collectors and art connoisseurs around the world. This is especially the case when the artist is one of Australia’s late, great Indigenous artists.
“Wild Yam Dreaming” by Margaret Turner Petyarre : Australian Aboriginal Art Collectible Painting from Utopia
The painting is titled “Wild Yam Dreaming”. The subject matter is in keeping with the tribal women’s food gathering responsibilities in the traditional hunter-gatherer society of Australia’s Aborigines. The artist paints these bush tucker related designs 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. In relation to women’s tribal responsibilities, bush tucker refers to the native food gathered in the bush, including yams, native fruits and berries and medicinal leaves.
Margaret Turner Petyarre was born in Alpurrurulam (aka Lake Nash) on the north-eastern edge of the Utopia region in the Central Desert of the Northern Territory in Central Australia. Utopia is famous for its deeply respected Aboriginal women artists who became nationally and internationally renowned, such as Margaret’s famously artistic cousins, Gloria Petyarre and Kathleen Petyarre.
The dimensions of the canvas are 96cm x 80cm. 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 at least a 5cm border (top and bottom) and a 3cm border (on each side) to allow for framing or wood mounting. The border exists due to the actual painted area centred within the canvas being approximately 90cm x 69cm.
This Aboriginal art painting was completed in 2007, eight months before the artist sadly passed away. It is in excellent condition and signed on the back by the artist.
