This basket is a ceremonial basket of the Aboriginal people of Arnhem Bay, Northern Territory, Australia. This particular basket on display was created in 1942 CE and was loaned to Museum Victoria in March of that year. The Aboriginal language spoken in the Arnhem Bay area is Dhalwangu. The materials used to make this type of basket are pandanus fibre, possum fur, parrot feathers, resin, plant fibre and cloth. (The Aboriginal Cultural Centre - Bunjilaka, Melbourne Museum)
