Ubirr, Kakadu

Recently we travelled to Kakadu and saw the ancient aboriginal rock art as the sun set on the distant horizon. Having travelled to many places in the wider world, it was a very special experience to see this part of our country. The ancient rock art reminds you of the highest, most authentic meaning art can offer you. Whatever it was, it was the opposite of art as commodity. It was art as spirituality, art as ultimate reality, art as going as far as the human soul can go. Despite being part of a tourist industry, the profound authenticity of the rock art and the magic of this landscape of river and rock made a great impression on us. You should go. These shots are from Ubirr.
