ELEGANT ACTION FIGURE
Section of a deteriorated 540x420mm (21x16ins) ceiling panel involving at least four Elegant Action Figures running with one arm raised. Adjacent more intact examples indicate that the short shaft held in the upper figure's upraised arm to be the remnants of a Multi Barb Spear. This Group's artists were noticeably concerned with carefully arranging figure alignments to maximise aesthetics; seen in the exaggerated leg alignments of these running figures. The arm clutching the favoured assemblages of Crescentic Boomerang stacks and small dillybag is shown trailing: clearly illustrating these important elements below, but in an unobtrusive manner which balances rather than clutters the composition.
