Records of the Australian Museum, Vol. 3

Excerpt from Records of the Australian Museum, Vol. 3 The more or less rare occurrence of this form of sculpture on the. Implements and weapons of our Aborigines will probably render a notice of several instances interesting. The late Mr. R. Brough Smyth remarked* many years ago that Curved lines are rarely seen. Any attempt to represent a curve in all the specimens I have examined has been a failure.' Mr. Andrew Lang even made a more sweeping statement? When he wrote that the patterns used by the Australian Aborigines are such as can be produced without the aid of spirals or curves or circles. Of the incorrectness of this statement, no better example can be adduced than the circular incised figures seen on the Bull-roarers figured: by the late Mr. Edward Hardman, from the Kimberley District, N. W. Australia. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at This book is a reproduction of an important historical work.
