Indigenous rock art in remote Western Australia.

The remote location of the sites – in the east Kimberley, more than 1,000km east of Broome and 3,400km north of Perth – has helped protect them over the years since European arrival.

The sites contained more than 30,000 images, including a number of the haunting, elongated human forms known as Gwion figures.
