Description and history
This is an original painting by known artist Bindi, originally from Maryborough, Queensland. Bindi is an unlisted artist, with this surname, there is only one listed artist:
Irene Bindi (21st century)
However, I could find several references of the artist in local newspapers. First of all, I used our AI software to identify if it is a reproduction, here are the results:
As we can see, there is no other artwork similar to this Bindi piece, we can conclude it is original. From the back we can read the title of this piece “Vessel that the spirit contains”.
With all the information I am able to provide the appraisal Value. I think this artwork is very interesting for all kind of Aboriginal Art collectors from your local area. However, as Bindi was a local artist, I don’t see international interest in this art piece.
Appraisal Value ($)
– 450-550$ (630-770AU$)

How to sell it
Art pieces are difficult to sell, you will need some time to find a buyer, so be patient!
To sell the items, I would recommend doing so through the internet. You have plenty of options, for instance:
– Ebay, Craiglist, Etsy, Facebook ads, Amazon marktplace
I would probably go ahead and take a couple of good pictures, like described here:
Then I would use the provided description as a text to the ad, and an attractive ad title will make it.
There isn’t any special difference between selling it on Etsy, FB or Amazon. I would recommend to upload the same ad to at least two or three platforms. It will ensure a high visibility of the ad.
The asking price can be close to the value, it depends upon how fast you want to sell. In general, an agressive strategy of 20% price cut will work great, however it depends upon your specific location.
About the valuation method
To value this item I have considered the results from past auction sales. Keep in mind that the final price can be different from asking prices that you can find on the internet. You can see ads on the internet with different asking prices. However, a very high asking price doesn’t normally find cash from a buyer.
That’s why our method comprises searching and comparing similar past sale results that had a buyer. That’s why we can provide an accurate estimation of this item.
For art pieces, remember that it isn’t the same a print, a limited edition print or an original art piece. If the artist can’t be identified, the value assigned corresponds to the quality and potential interest of the market for the painting.
