Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. Just as you suggested, this appears to be an aboriginal work of art by an anonymous mid century artist. Without a specific provenance down to the artist it is impossible to narrow the search. The estimate is based on similar artefacts by lesser known artists sold at auction.
