   Ned and Edna Clem spent 5 weeks exploring the rock art of Australia, visiting some rarely seen sites. They went to Uluru (Ayers Rock) in Northern Territory, Alice Springs, Kakadu National Park, and Arnherm Land, observing the famous X-ray images and pecked images. In Broome, on the northwest coast, they visited, Kimberley, better known as the Outback, home to many Aboriginal people. Driving the famed Gibb River (dirt) Road on a two-week safari, to Windjina, they saw the Rainmaker Creation Spirit glyph often placed above burial sites. The the graceful tasseled figures Gwion Gwion figures, (formerly called the Bradshaw figures) were Edna’s favorite glyphs. Perhaps most intriguing, were drawings of ancient animals, now extinct, that had been superimposed with later images.

    Ned and Edna have traveled the world photographing Rock Art and we are excited to see their latest adventures from the great Outback of Australia.
