Great series!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Thanks Helen, Ben and R&R :-D

by the way, Anonymous, I did NOT change the color on the blue Kangaroo, that was the way it was at the zoo in the Kangaroo compound.

Dunno how authentic it is, but it is what they had.

Anonymous said...

Hhehheee, blue and green are the two colours you will never see in Aboriginal Art ... they should have researched but it might be to suit their zoo :)

Lynette said...

I agree with Fenix, one hundred percent.

Just now the fish plaque photos are those little boxes with the question marks. Thought you'd want to know. I'll come back later to take another look.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Thanks, Anonymous and Lynette.

You learn something new every day. I don't know much about Aboriginal art, but I sure do like it! Do you think I should TELL the people at the zoo? There doesn't really seem to be any reason why it needs to be that color.

I will try the fish plaques again tomorrow. Or Monday.

It's just for decorative purposes ... i'd leave the matter alone because it's also illegal here to do aboriginal painting unless aboriginal! Of course many do including everyone at school, but to sell that is ...
