This is a watercolour painted by Samuel Gill in about 1850, entitled 'Two natives and child by a creek'. The painting, which measures 10 cm x 12 cm, is also known as 'Aborigine with barbed spear'. The location is unidentified. The image shows three Indigenous Australians - a man, a woman, and a child aged about three. All are barefoot and wearing what could be a mixture of traditional and European clothing. They are standing in an open area beside a creek. The man is carrying a barbed spear and the woman has a long stick in one hand and a loose basket over her left shoulder.
