Message on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander content
The National Gallery of Victoria respectfully advises Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people that this site includes images, works and names of deceased Indigenous people and may include images of artistic, cultural or intellectual property that may be of a sensitive nature. We have made efforts to ensure that restricted works are not reproduced. This website may contain terms that reflect the period in which the item was created and may be considered inappropriate today. These are a reflection of past practices only and do not reflect the attitudes of the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne.
The NGV is committed to making as much of the collection available on line as possible. Please note some of these records contain images of First Nations people and cultural practices. Please contact [email protected] if you have reason to believe any of these records contain sensitive, secret/sacred, and/or restricted content, and therefore should not be publicly available.
