Dingo Dog Spirit

Acrylic on Canvas

20" W x 20" H

Dingoes have been on the Australian continent for the past 4000 or so years. It is thought that they were brought to the mainland by Asian seafarers, with whom the Aboriginal people had extensive trade links. During this time dingoes have been woven into the fabric of Aboriginal life, law, and culture. Little distinction is usually made between dingoes and more recently introduced dogs when applying Indigenous beliefs and law.
