Paper-bark Frame

paper-bark-frame-smaller

This print of a painting by Howard Terpning (The Ghost Dance) depicts “the Plains Indians in a desperate attempt to invoke spiritual help to maintain their cultural traditions in the face of white settlement.” (The inevitable tragedy of colonisation.)

The frame (an important part of any painting) is made of a collage of paper-bark from a Tea-tree down the road.
