Description - The Dendroglyphs, or 'Carved Trees' of New South Wales by R. Jnr Etheridge

Aboriginal people of NSW carved trees as a form of visual communication for thousands of years. These elaborate designs carved into the sapwood and heartwood of trees once a section of external bark was removed - were meant to last. Sadly, after European colonisation, the practice was abandoned and the original meanings lost. Facsimile edition
