Australian Aboriginal art you can take to the bank

According to The Australian, Australia's national newspaper, Aboriginal art from Titjikala Art Centre will soon adorn National Australia Bank ATM locations in major cities around the Australia.

This support for native artists is reported to be part of efforts by National Australia Bank and the Commonwealth government to encourage self-initiative and economic development among Aborigines, long dependent on their art for economic sustenance.
