The Pole is the work of the Aboriginal artist, Yumbulul and is an example of poles used by the Aboriginal people of the north-east Arnhem Land on certain ceremonial occasions. Some original works commissioned by the Bank from Aboriginal artists have been used to creat background patterns. One side symbolizes European settlement. The other side symbolizes the Australian $10 Commemorative Bank Note discovery and settlement of Australia some 40,000 - 60,000 years earlier.
