Standing rock advertising has been used to promote the idea that we need to wear a headdress at bedtime, but what is it about standing rock that makes it so attractive?
As we approach the end of summer, it’s tempting to dress up in a traditional, white headdress, but standing rock is a popular alternative.
Standing rock is often found on mountainsides in Western Australia, where it is often seen in the form of small boulders, rock formations and small rock formations.
Some have called standing rock ‘the new mountain man’, and many claim that it’s the new ‘rock on the wall’.
According to the Australian National University, standing rock has been popularised by the advent of the internet and social media in the 1970s, and now has become a favourite way of promoting a traditional Australian lifestyle.
Stand up rock advertising is usually carried out on small bouldering and rock formations, which are often found at night or on steep hillsides.
In a recent study published in the journal Australian Journal of Archaeology, the researchers found that the popularity of standing rock in Western Australian’s mountains has increased in recent years.
The research found that in the past 10 years, the number of advertisements featuring standing rock climbed by about 200 per cent.
This was most likely because standing rock advertisements have been shown in public spaces where they are not expected to be seen by most Australians.
The researchers said that while standing rock advertisement is popular among the public, it does not have a long-term impact on local Aboriginal communities.
This is because the advertisements are not usually accompanied by cultural messages, such as a traditional prayer or traditional songs, and instead focus on ‘the rock itself’, as well as the ‘rock as rock’ image, they said.
But while the advertising may be popular, there are also cultural benefits to standing rock.
“This is not only a social media phenomenon but also a biological phenomenon, where rock is found on the ground and people are attracted to it,” Dr Sivarajan said.
“Standing rock has also been used as a place to raise children, which may be part of the reason why people are now choosing to do this.”
If you look at other types of advertisements that have been used in the Australian bush in recent times, like a bush barbecue or a bushwalk, they are generally not accompanied by any messages about cultural practices or the importance of traditional ceremonies, or the role of traditional people in traditional culture.
“The study also found that there are many factors that contribute to the success of standing sandstone advertising.
While most of the advertisements featured the rock as a rock, some also highlighted the importance and history of the rock, and other natural resources.
Dr Sivarmajan’s research found there was a strong correlation between the number and prominence of advertising messages on standing sandstones.”
The rock itself is a very important part of traditional Aboriginal culture and it is a part of our tradition and culture, so it is not surprising that we would see these types of advertising,” she said.
While standing sand stone advertising has continued to be popular in Western Australians, the research found it had a much more negative impact on Aboriginal communities and on Aboriginal people themselves.
Dr. Sivarnan said it is important to remember that the adverts may be appealing to the general public, but the advertisements may be divisive, and that they are unlikely to have a lasting impact on the communities they target.”
I don’t think we can be too concerned about the advertising that’s being done, because it doesn’t have much to do with Aboriginal people and their traditions,” she explained.”
What we can do is look at the ads, see what is going on in the communities that are being targeted and then ask ourselves whether we’re going to take the ads seriously or not.
