The male figure in this painting appears to be depicted perhaps standing still as the feet are turned inwards although the arms are slightly outstretched. This is one of five bark paintings donated to the museum by Dr George Horne in 1922. One was later exchanged with the Australian Museum in Sydney. They were most likely collected in the late1800s or around 1900.

Physical Description
