Mimi art from the NT (published in Australian Archaeology 44:10).

One of the features of north Australian rock art remarked upon by many researchers over the years is the apparent similarity between the ‘Mimi’ art of Arnhem Land and the ‘Bradshaw’ art in the Kimberley. Among others, Schulz (1956:12), Berndt and Berndt (1964:357, 365), Crawford (1968:82, 1977:357, 369), Brandl (1973:185–187), Chaloupka (1984:55, 1993:118) and Welch (1990:121–123, 1993:25–27) have all suggested a cultural connection between the two art bodies.
