A society strongly connected to natural resources

The artefacts used to stimulate discussion and to develop further this idea of a sense of place were drawn from two world regions, Papua New Guinea and Australia. The PNG artefacts demonstrated a society strongly connected to natural resources, and very much concerned with expressing identity (through body painting, for example).  The aboriginal bark paintings, combined with discussion of how they were made, allowed pupils to think about how drawing and painting could be used to express ideas about people, animals and territory.
