On a recent visit to Canberra we visited the National Gallery of Australia. The first work of art that you see as you enter is this spectacular Aboriginal installation.
Its title is "The Aboriginal Memorial" and was produced by 43 artists from the central Arnhem Land area of the Northern Territory. There are 200 hollow "coffins" (not all visible here) in the display representing those aboriginal people who lost their lives during the 200 years of European colonisation from 1788 to 1988. There is one for each of those 200 years.
