Karijini National Park Treasures

I mentioned in an earlier post that I’d used a photo of Mundjina Rock as the basis for a piece of art. Here are two different type of rocks from the Karijini National Park in the north-west of Western Australia.  Each has a quite unique, distinct pattern which seemed to resonate with rock art. So below them I’ve also posted some photos of Aboriginal Australian rock art which dates back 40,000 years.

  1. These are the only rocks I’ve got from the Karijini National Park, Irene. They’re slabs rather than polished stones, although one side has been polished to bring up the colours. I saw them on ebay when I lived in Australia, bought the ones in the photos and didn’t see any more after that. Sorry not to be able to be of help.
