You can really see with this exhibit that we were almost there at paper-prototype stage. This exhibit is for the Living Lands exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland. It sits in the section about the traditional lifestyle of the Australian Aboriginal people, and looks at how nomadic people can have many uses for one object. It sits beside a showcase display of shields from the museum’s collections.
