Summary Unique to north-west and central Kimberley are representations of the ethereal Wandjina spirit being. Also specific to the Kimberley are engraved and painted artefacts, namely boab nuts, pearl-shell pendants, stone and glass spear points, bark buckets and ilma emblems. Most contemporary art from the Kimberley shares a fundamental ingredient - it seeks to be a visual 'voice' which reinforces the prerogative of Aboriginal land rights
