Aboriginal Rock Engravings

The Western Australian Government sanctioned sacrifice of Australian Aboriginal rock engravings on the Burrup Peninsula for the petrochemical industry

I am therefore including four images I have not previously shown, as it did not feel right to do so

The "Gregory Stone", presumably following the Gregory Expedition of eighteensomething. The depiction is very literal and describes a horse & rider and boot-deformed feet. Australian Aboriginal feet are broad, earth grasping feet. There is a 5x4" image of this rock in the landscape, but I have decided to withold it as it would betray the location
