BOAB100: Wesfarmers Centenary Gift Commission

BOAB100 Wesfarmers Centenary Gift Commission in partnership with Waringarri Aboriginal Arts | 2014 | limited edition set of 15 sculptures in white aluminium

In 2014 Wesfarmers and Waringarri Aboriginal Arts brought together 15 Kimberley artists to create an original limited-edition gift to mark the Centenary of Wesfarmers in 2014.

Inspired by the iconic boab tree and an artform unique to the East Kimberley region of Western Australia the tradition of boab nut engraving – designs by senior and emerging Waringarri artists have been cast from original engravings as fine art sculptures in white aluminium in a limited edition of 100 sculptures.

The Wesfarmers Collection of Australian Art acknowledges all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Traditional Custodians of Country and recognises their continuing connection to land, sea, culture and community. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.
