This book features superb new photography and stunning landscape shots with an extraordinary selection of objects showcasing the beauty and knowledge embodied in works of art and everyday life from Indigenous Australia.

This ground-breaking new publication explores the profound impact and legacy of colonialism, the nature of collecting and the changing meaning of objects now in the collection of the British Museum. The encounters between Indigenous peoples and colonists were complex and nuanced, and contemporary Australian society is still dealing with this legacy, trying to transform or reconcile different worldviews.
