This colourful metal dog ornament has been hand painted on both sides in the Northern Territory at the Aboriginal Warlukulangu Artist Centre.
The one of a kind metal desert dogs are a great Australian initiative and they make a very unique Australian gift. It is approximately 17cm long and 10cm high.
The metal ornament has been cut in the local prison and then painted on both sides by Aboriginal artists at the Warlukulangu Artist Centre. It really is an authentic Australian made item.
Established in 1985 the Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation is a not-for-profit organisation that is 100% Aboriginal-owned by its artists from the remote desert communities of Yuendumu and Nyirripi in Central Australia.
Warlukurlangu Artists is famous for its gloriously colourful acrylic paintings and limited edition prints. The art centre has a national and international profile and its art has been featured in hundreds of exhibitions and publications in Australia and around the world.
A wonderful thank you gift for corporate events or a special something for your Dad for Father's Day and Christmas.
Each dog comes with a tag with details of the Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation.
As this is a unique one of a kind item the artwork and textures of the ornament also have their individual characteristics and the photo imagery will not always pick up on these.
Sale of this artwork directly benefits the artist and the Warlukurlangu Artist community.
