Message Sticks Pink 120x160cm Oak Frame
‘Message sticks’ were used as a traditional way of communication.
Message sticks were transmitted between different communities across the massive landscape of Australia. Messages communicated may have included announcements of ceremonies, invitations to meetings, corroborees, or marriages.
In many cases, message sticks were objects that granted its carrier a safe passage and entry into the lands of other Aboriginal Communities, and on some occasions, the sticks were burnt after the message was received, to keep some business confidential.

Our stretched canvas fine art prints are professionally printed on polycotton artist canvas, using archival inks and then stretched and gallery wrapped. This means the image is stretched around a 38mm frame to create a seamless, museum-quality finish. All stretched and box framed art prints arrive ready to hang.
SHADOW BOX FRAMES
We also offer the option to add a shadow box frame to your canvas art print. A little different from a traditional framed print, the canvas sits within the box frame with a 5mm gap, creating a sophisticated shadow effect between the frame and the canvas. Our solid timber box frame mouldings are 10mm wide, and 55mm deep, and add approximately 40mm to the length and height of the listed canvas size.
