    Hello Metamoragirl,

    The artwork is Australian Aboriginal Art from the Utopia region ( could be by Minnie Pwerle/Purla) this is her style. She died in 2006 - art highly collectible. One of her daughters paint in this style - much more affordable.. it could most likely be that one, the size we're looking at could easily be 8-10K if by Minnie . Now the same size by her daughter may run you 1K… betty Mbitjana / Mpetyane. I have bought art via Artlandish Art gallery in Western Australia, and they have some online by betty you may look at. You usually get painting in a week/ rolled in tube via TNT courier and you take it to get stretched and mounted on a frame. Hope this helps you. regards, Georgie

    The painting is symbolic as well. The Circles- represent watering holes, the oval with lines ( breasts- how the females place paints on their bodies during dance etc. usually the smaller circles are bush plums ( fruits the aboriginies eat - found in the bush area. love how their paintings are beautiful and tells a story.

        15. Lively artwork. Adding a single piece of original artwork is always a great way to start (or complete) a room design, and can take a family room from basic to stunning in the time it takes you to hang a picture. To highlight a painting, keep other wall art to a minimum, and paint the walls white or another neutral hue to provide a backdrop for the art. 9 Reasons to Buy a PaintingTell us: What fun feature have you incorporated into your family room?

        Lighting is an easy way to introduce geometrics into your home without going over-the-top; a range of angular pendants and table lamps with sharp edges — think the popular hexagon design — is becoming increasingly available. You could also try swapping your pendant shade for one with a cutout geometric pattern, like this one, the DT-Kina 600. When the light is switched on, the shade’s intricate pattern is subtly reflected on the ceiling and walls, adding visual interest, texture and ambience.

        I like how the artwork makes the room come alive. JON: not this type of art, though. I would LOVE a reprint of a big WPA style poster. that's colorful and comports with our politics/values. fortunately we're fans of the new deal so that's not hard. e.g., https://www.google.com/search?q=WPA+poster&tbm=isch&tbs=rimg:CfQTJU5GFOoSIjjkeFnrENXYIUMLJslfRmT7ii7vtbgB1QOcV6cqiVWzbjBS5PrkUkGk5-Pn0XcEJWHz6a79YFE_1mSoSCeR4WesQ1dghEXA0fipcsLSLKhIJQwsmyV9GZPsRqvzhhm6QnnoqEgmKLu-1uAHVAxFSBErrL1O48yoSCZxXpyqJVbNuEZ48sCYNE7olKhIJMFLk-uRSQaQRTR9I8XoqExcqEgnn4-fRdwQlYREQordrvSsxMCoSCfPprv1gUT-ZEWqd2Igbrulx&tbo=u&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjX3d24tKfjAhVOaM0KHSLrAHMQ9C96BAgBEBs&biw=1327&bih=909&dpr=2

        I just like this room (for kids?). I like the color and the whimsy -- I guess it is not really ski-house vibe

        Узор лампы повторяется на решётке, в стульях, на картине. Примерно похожий разноцветный тон во многих деталях. А сама база бежевая.
