Australian aboriginal art eucalyptus bark painting (the art itself 28 1/2" by 20 1/2", the mounting panel 35" by 20"), by known artist GEORGE ANARAGAYURA (1934-), the powerful image consisting of two parallel crocodiles, surrounded by small fish, some tiny humans, and, I think, several other creatures less easily identified. On the reverse original label appears the artist's name, his tribe (the Burada tribe of the Blyth River area of northern Australia), and the following description of the image: "Men are singing and dancing the crocodile. The croc-ancestor came to Gamura-giyura in the dreamtime and changed into a big rock there". This work likely dates to the late 1960's or early 1970's. There is an auction record for the artist's work but basically there is not a lot of biographical information or record for his works in the art market. The piece of bark has curled at left edge as seen, now displaced by several inches away from the backing panel. Otherwise condition is excellent. Contact me first if you are in Australia.
