MetadataShow full item record
This chapter highlights the concept of ‘style’ within rock art research in relation to Dynamic Figure rock art found in western Arnhem Land, Australia (Figure 6.1). Our aim is to reassess George Chaloupka’s four-phase chronology for this art style. The data for this revision are 155 Dynamic Figure paintings, documented through our ongoing fieldwork in Mirarr Country as part of the Mirarr Gunwarddebim (Rock Art) Project.
