Abstract:

This collection of art is unique. It is the first time that a group of Aboriginal men have offered, through art, their perspectives on their lives and wellbeing. Using contemporary techniques and methods, the artists present a wide range of narratives that link ancient ways of understanding and describing their world and their wellbeing today. The collection, therefore, provides an important and valuable body of knowledge about health.
