Aboriginal art has always been at the forefront in promoting awareness and understanding Australia's rich and diverse indigenous culture. For many non-Aboriginal people, Aboriginal art is the first experience they have of Australia's Aboriginal heritage and as such the production of art and craft is an important means for Aboriginal people to communicate their stories, spirituality and relationship to the land.
The Rainbow Serpent has been trading since 1991 and continues to encourage this dialogue by sourcing art and craft from Aboriginal community art centers which are controlled and owned by Aboriginal communities as well as working directly with urban and country artists across Australia. This guarantees the authenticity of the art and ensures that the artist is benefiting.
The Rainbow Serpent'?s product range represents the dynamic force of contemporary Aboriginal art and design. Handcrafts range from traditional forms such as boomerangs, didgeridoos, bark paintings, Tiwi carvings and central desert canvases, through to contemporary ceramics, silk painting and bush jewellery. A wide variety of licensed products are also available featuring genuine Aboriginal designs with royalties paid to the artist.
The Rainbow Serpent also specializes in corporate gifts which can be customized to suit any occasion. Work with our artists to create something memorable for your next special event or occasion.
