Ancient Ochres: The Aboriginal Rock Paintings of Mount Borradaile
David Andrew Roberts, Adrian Parker JB Books, 2003 – 104 pages
Ancient Ochres is the first book to catalogue and describe the remarkable rock paintings of the Mount Borradaile region.
Although some of these paintings have been known to non-Aborigines for decades, most have been only recently discovered and are published here for the first time.
The authors present a spectacular and wide-ranging pictorial record of the region's rock art, illustrating the enormous variety and diversity of painting styles and subjects, from the most ancient works to the most recent, drawing on an extensive body of scholarship and local knowledge to relate the nature and significance of the paintings in terms of local environment and cultural history.
