Timeline PhotosWhen Lieutenant Cook sailed the HMB Endeavour up the East Coast in 1770, First Nations peoples lit carefully managed signal fires on headlands as a warning. While the ship’s crew noted smoke and fires, they lacked the cultural knowledge to see that an emergency response system was in action.

Wow!🦈This is a Kaygas mask (in the shape of a shovel nosed shark), which was made in 2015 by Alick Tipoti, an artist from the island of Erub in the Torres Strait, Australia.
It was inspired in part by a turtle-shell mask in the collection which the artist says is his favourite out of all the ancient Torres Strait Island masks he has seen.
Tipoti notes that this mask is associated with the Kaygasiw Usul (milky way star constellation) which is linked to the zugubal (spiritual ancestors). The artist has also choreographed a dance in which a performer wears this mask – the songs describe how the Milky Way was created and how the zugubal travel from the spiritual to the human world.
See this stunning mask on display in Room 24 of the Museum – The Wellcome Trust Gallery. Book your free tickets: ow.ly/Z6jj30rQsPj
