Drawing in the Land

List of Plates

Plate 1.1 Images of marsupial gliders drawn in a way that visually suggests their movement into the rock (rock shelter A12).

Plate 1.2 An unusually large anthropomorphic motif (160 cm high) drawn in a way that visually inhabits the viewer’s ‘lived’ space (rock shelter UA36).

Plate 1.3 Lizard Creek flowing northward along the ridge crest situated to the west of the Cataract River. The abundance of water available on the plateau, rather than only in valleys, is an unusual and significant natural phenomenon of the study area.

Plate 1.4 The Illawarra Escarpment looking west towards the Woronora Plateau from the coastal plain.

Plate 1.5 The stored water of the Avon Dam, looking north-west from the rock art shelter site UA49.

Plate 1.6 Very small, lightly scratched eel motif. The head and fins are at the bottom of photo, slightly truncated by the camera frame (rock shelter BR12).

Plate 1.7 Large colourful eel motifs (rock shelter BR29).

Plate 1.8 Grinding groove site in the sandstone bed of an upland dell (swamp) (open site UA3).

Plate 1.9 A small rock shelter in a boulder that has a relatively large number of graphic and non-graphic rock marks (rock shelter SCR4).

Plate 2.1 Typical rock shelter floor comprised of roof-fall boulders (rock shelter EC36).

Plate 2.2 Example of weathering processes on rock art.

Plate 5.1 Pigment blobs with stencils (rock shelter C39).

Plate 7.7 Phase 3 imagery (rock shelter SCR10).

Plate 8.1 Small intaglio engravings at the Bundanoon rock shelter.

Plate 8.8 Examples of non-graphic charcoal ‘pigment marking’ highlighted with arrows, showing pigment application to the edges of natural rock features (rock shelter TL18; mark ID 847).

Plate 8.9 Phase 3 eel motif (front end) drawn with charcoal and white pigment and ‘v’-shaped infill (rock shelter A12).

Plate 8.10 Phase 3 wombat with some of its associated circular motifs (rock shelter AF4).

Plate 8.11 Phase 2 wombat with some of its associated elliptical motifs (rock shelter UA47).

Plate 8.12 Phase 3 snake graphic (rock shelter Wade5).
