Title: THE MOST COMMON MODERN ABORIGINAL ART SYMBOLS

THE MOST COMMON MODERN ABORIGINAL ART SYMBOLS
  • By Topdidj

2
The Waterhole
  • Its easy to overlook the importance of this
    symbol in Modern Aboriginal art, but the
    waterhole plays a critical role in desert
    survival and so is paramount in Indigenous
    artwork. Not only do they occur in stories
    because of their physical presence in historys
    tales they are seen as sacred places, and convey
    how essential they are in the Aboriginal people
    beliefs. Below, Justin Ronberg has used the
    waterhole as a meeting point for these dancing
    animals in Ukaka, all of which hold their own
    symbolic significance in Indigenous art.

The Hunter
  • Deviating from the U shape emerges a symbol
    depicting a hunter. This symbol is formed from
    the U shape body and is usually accompanied by a
    line. The line is most commonly the hunters
    spear or similar weapon. Noongar artist Dennis
    Kickett tells the tale of men who would go out on
    the hunt for large game, as the women gathered
    types of vegetation and small game.

The flow of water
  • Its not uncommon to see tracks that depict
    running water as it stems from waterholes in
    Aboriginal art. Since so much of Australias
    outback is dry, arid landscape, running water is
    a treasure in several communities and a valuable
    part of Indigenous storytelling. The lines in
    artwork can involve the elements of a storm that
    brings the precious flow of water to the dry
    creek beds

6
The Snake
  • From the symbol of strength to the serpent of
    creation, the snake is a major character in many
    Aboriginal art stories. Throughout Australias
    indigenous communities, it is respected as a
    strong force within the animal kingdom.
