Aborigines preparing for a dreamtime
The Dreamtime spirituality activates the
metaphysical realms of reality within our souls,
and helps us to find their true meanings
desires.

Story This is the country of Sam, his father,
and his brother-in-law. In this painting
Warnampi , the quiet snake, loves in the lake.
The lake is defined by the only unbroken line in
the painting. Other snakes, death adders, move
across the land. You can catch this snake by
sneaking up on him from behind and grabbing him
by the back of his head. This is from the
Tingari law story, very important in men's
rituals.

Aboriginal Artist Jimmy at work
Concentric designs, trails, swirls, and excessive
dotting are all characteristic of aboriginal
work.

Terry Dhurritjini Yumbulul
Modern Aboriginal Artists paint on canvas with
acrylics. The main theme is still the dreaming
and the stylistic characteristics are
still primarily concentric shapes, dotting,
trailing.
9
signs/symbols
Signs do not have one meaning. Only the artist
can tell for sure the meaning of any given
symbol. Concentric circles may be a
gathering place or a waterhole.
10
X-ray Drawing of a
Male Kangaroo
X-ray drawing is an aboriginal way of seeing the
exterior and interior of familiar subjects and
portraying both at once.
11
X-ray Drawings
By portraying internal and external
characteristics at the same time, the artist
renders his extensive knowledge and understanding
of the animal.
12
Traditional Aborigines photographed and displayed
on a contemporary background.
13
Aborigines eat wood worms and use the wood eaten
out by termites for the making of Didgeridoos.
Insects are often portrayed because they
represent sustenance for them and for many of
the animals they depend upon such as the opossum
and the frilled lizard.
