Australia's most eminent Indigenous art awards, the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards (NATSIAA), were without reserve, breathtaking.
Artists from the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands swept the field being awarded four of the six categories with their stunning and tremendously moving works.
Interestingly, both delicate and extremely intricate black and white works in various media appeared to dominate in this year's selection of 66 finalists from over 300 entries. Congratulations to all the finalists, such exceptional work.
Here are some images of the award winning works and our personal favorites with a special mention to Robert Fielding , winner of the 'Works on Paper' award with 'Milkali Kutju - One Blood' who moved us so profoundly with his work, his message and grace.
Currently on exhibit at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory in Darwin through to the 26th of November 2017.
