Collection: Aboriginal Bark Paintings & Artefacts

Australian Aboriginal artefacts include a variety of cultural artefacts used by Aboriginal Australians. Spears, clubs, boomerangs and shields were used generally as weapons for hunting and in warfare. 

Australian Aboriginal people from the Northern region of Australia have traditionally painted on bark as a method for passing traditional ancestral stories from one generation to the next. Bark paintings are usually made from sections of the outer bark cut from eucalyptus trees. Natural ochres, clays, minerals and charcoal are traditionally used for pigments, which were sometimes mixed with natural binders such as plant gums or blood.

Mitchell Fine Art showcases a diverse range of high-quality bark paintings and Australian Aboriginal artefacts which can be purchased securely online or via the Gallery in Fortitude Valley.
