18th Century Aboriginal Aborigine Angry Australasia Indigenous People Native People Thomas Watling Watling


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a historical portrait of an Aboriginal man named Bennelong, drawn by Thomas Watling in the late 18th century. The drawing, titled "Native name Ben-nel-long, as painted when angry after Botany Bay Colebee was wounded by Port Jackson Painter, " offers a glimpse into the life and emotions of this indigenous figure. Bennelong's intense expression reveals his anger and frustration, perhaps stemming from the violent incident involving Colebee. This illustration serves as a powerful reminder of the challenges faced by Aboriginal people during this tumultuous period in Australian history. The significance of this artwork lies not only in its historical context but also in its portrayal of an individual who played a pivotal role in early interactions between European settlers and native Australians. Bennelong acted as a bridge between these two worlds, serving as an interpreter and mediator during his encounters with British colonizers. Through this image, we are invited to reflect on the resilience and strength exhibited by Indigenous peoples throughout history. It serves as a tribute to their rich cultural heritage while shedding light on the complex dynamics that shaped Australia's past. As we admire this remarkable piece from Mary Evans Prints Online, let us appreciate its contribution to our understanding of Australia's indigenous history and honor those like Bennelong who have left an indelible mark on our collective memory.
