- Curator's comments
The two painted wooden shileds in the photograph are possibly objects in The British Museum's collection museum number: Oc1936,0720.- They have not yet been identified.
It is possible that the shield in the top of this photograph is the same object which can be seen in a published photograph being held by an Indigenous man standing in a canoe on the Eilanden River. See: Plate 18, opposite page 52 in Lord Moyne (1936) "Walkabout", William Heinemann Ltd.
