Many politicians and anthropologist consider the drawing as vandalism. Especially the Dieri, the aboriginal tribe on whose territory the Marree Man lies, regard the figure as damage to their land.
No matter whether one describes the Marree Man as graffiti or art – the giant remains impressive. And the people of Marree do not want their neighbor to go away since he is responsible for something that they did not know before: tourists. And those tend to spend quite a bit of money for a flight over the world’s largest geoglyph.
