Summary
Poster promoting the travelling exhibition "Ngurrara: The Great Sandy Desert Canvas", which was on show at the National Museum of Australia from 5 April to 22 June 2008 in the First Australians Focus Gallery. The great Ngurrara Canvas is one of the largest and most spectacular Aboriginal Western Desert paintings.
