'Australian Inhabitants', 1800-1850.Artist: G Mutzel

'Australian Inhabitants', 1800-1850. Far from being one homogenous race, at the time of European settlement in the 18th century, the estimated 750, 000 Aborigines in Australia had at least 300 different languages and a wide variety of lifestyles. Here, many different peoples of Oceania are shown, including Tongans, Samoans, Maoris and Papuans.
