Helmut Petri, Agnes Schulz, Gerta Kleist, Patrick Pentony and Arthur Capell, as well as Dr.Andreas Lommel's work with the Unambal tribe, and the more recent investigations done by Dr. Walsh, Ian Wilson, Hugh Brown, Dan Clark and Leif Thiele, Kimberley's aboriginal art is gradually becoming more and more appreciated at home and abroad.(See also: Prehistoric Colour Palette.) However, Gwion painting embraces a number of distinct but overlapping styles - including Tassel Gwion figures, Sash Gwion figures, and Elegant Action figures, to name but three - which span the European phase of Magdalenian art.Gwion rock painting evolved gradually over a long period, and overlaps with its later variants: Static Polychrome and Painted Hand.This period is also known as "Clawed Hand" and equates roughly to the era of Neolithic art in Europe.

Outlines are drawn using long flowing brushstrokes, with head, tail and limbs receiving a solid infill of colour, while the trunk is given an uneven, irregular infill.Art from this period is also known as "Wararrajai", or "Clothes Peg Figures" and corresponds roughly to the era of Mesolithic art in Europe.Arguably the most diverse of all the styles, at least in terms of motifs used, Painted Hand art is typically applied with broad brush strokes superimposed over earlier paintings.Not unlike Paleolithic art in Europe, the oldest art in the Kimberley region consists of petroglyphic markings, such as pecked cupules, hollows, and grooves - often in large numbers - as well as intricate stone arrangements.
