Larger size Australian aboriginal bark painting 38" by 23", the complex image featuring a number of native turtles and lizards, painted in natural earth pigments by the northern Australian aboriginal artist who is sometimes know as "Left Hand George", because he throws a spear with his left hand. He is better known as GEORGE JUNGAWANGA or JUNGAWUNGA or DJUNGGUNWANGA. The somewhat tattered original label on the reverse is from Mimi Aboriginal Arts and Crafts in Katherine, Northern Territory, Australia. It gives the artist as "LEFT HAND GEORGE", his tribe as "Monk Monk", the date as April 6, 1989, the subject as "2 turtles, 2 goannas (a type of Australian lizard), and 1 blue tongue lizard at the billabongs", along with reference numbers. According to my net research, the still-living artist specializes in making traditional aboriginal musical instruments, (mago, also called sometimes didgeridoo). He also created bark paintings. This sizable piece is very decorative and attractive. The artist does not appear to have a long record at auction. Contact me first if you are in Australia.
