The Lost World of the Kimberley.
Now a collectors item, Ian Wilsons publication describes the Kimberley as "the cultural hub of the Ice Age world. Today it holds within its bounds the world's largest collection of Ice Age figurative art, giving us vital clues to the origins of other cultures and civilisations right across the world". Known as the 'Bradshaws', after pioneer Joseph Bradshaw who chanced upon the first examples in 1892, the Kimberley paintings feature lithe, graceful human figures depicted in a fashion altogether different from that of even the oldest traditional art, providing extraordinary visual insights into the everyday lives of Ice Age people.
So who were these Bradshaw people? When did they live? What happened to them?
