This booklet has been published by the Lowitja Institute to accompany a collection of paintings by Aboriginal men from Western Australia's arid north-west. The paintings, created between 2002 and 2011, constitute a unique collection of art where, for the first time, a group of older, middle-aged and young Aboriginal men offer perspectives on their lives and wellbeing. Using contemporary techniques and methods, the artists present a wide range of narratives that link ancient ways of understanding and describing their world and wellbeing today. The collection provides an important and valuable body of knowledge about the health of Aboriginal men living in remote desert regions.
