Summary

Poster advertising Tasman Empire Airways Limited flights to Australia, with artwork showing an Aboriginal man dancing under a large bright red sun and some wispy clouds against a lighter red background. The dancer has one leg and one arm raised. He is wearing a mask (or highly stylised face decoration) as well as a long conical headdress with a tassel which curves to the left. His body and headdress are decorated with rows of white dots. The letter 'R' enclosed in a circle in the bottom right hand corner indicates the design was registered.
