A Reuters India report about the overnight theft of Aboriginal artworks from the Northern Territory Museum and Art Gallery.

Quoted from the article:

Gallery director Anna Malgorzewicz said the stolen paintings were not the most valuable in the gallery's collection, but they were historically significant works.

"They are one of the first bodies of work from that area, so they (are) historically very significant," she said.
