WARNING: Visitors should be aware that this website includes images and names of deceased people that may cause sadness or distress to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

These are the breastplates annotated in King Plates: A History of Aboriginal Gorgets by Jakelin Troy (1993) as well as breastplates that have come into the National Museum of Australia's collection since the publication of the book. More breastplates will be progressively added.

We welcome feedback about any of the breastplates and/or additional breastplates.
