Australia's campaign to ban fake aboriginal art 澳大利亚呼吁禁止进口及买卖土著风格的赝品

文字稿

Millions of people visit Australia every year. Many want to take a souvenir home with them and what could be more authentic, more Australian, than a boomerang? These two come with aboriginal-looking designs, but both are fake, both imported from Indonesia. The trade in rip-off goods led to calls for a new law in Australia to stop the import and sale of imitation art.
