Oceania

océanie

THE FIFTH PART OF THE WORLD
With the exception of cave paintings where artists from Australia’s primary people represented their favorite animals, the works were ephemeral (painted on skin, wood and other perishable materials). Oceanic artistic productions are not limited to Australian territory alone. Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia also testify to the fascination of man for the beings around him, very real animals or fantastic creatures: fairies, mermaids, sea snakes or other fish-men.

Oceania is a region of the world often assimilated to a continent by geographers. It covers 8.5 million km², divided into sixteen independent states and fifteen territories.Oceania has more than 38 million inhabitants. Despite being made up of over 25,000 islands, Australia accounts for most of its territory and population.
