Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Dunne, complexe, uit kruisarceringen opgebouwde patronen die zijn aangetroffen op schors en bij lichaamsbeschilderingen in Arnhem Land. Het patroon vormt niet alleen een decoratief element bij het beschilderen van schors of als lichaamsbeschildering, maar symboliseert tevens trots op de voorouders en een vorm van identificatie met de groep.
