Wandjina figures are among the most visually striking of all ancient Aboriginal art found in the Kimberley region. Created by the Worrorra people, the paintings are said to depict creator beings who made the world and all it contains. Wandjina are usually painted as full-length or head and shoulder figures with large mouthless faces and with enourmous eyes flanking a beak-like nose. The paintings shown here are seen on a cave ceiling at Raft Point, Collier Bay, Western Australia.
