Aboriginal art really involves story telling,
myths, rituals, sorcery, and magic, where the
artist describes their Dreaming, the stories of
creation, their beliefs, and their spirituality.
The strong relationship between the ancestral
beings of the 'time before time', the Dreamtime,
with the landscape and every living creature they
created forms the basis for this art.

  • There are a wide variety of styles of Aboriginal
    art. Three common types are
  • The cross-hatch or X-ray art from the Arnhem Land
    region of the Northern Territory, in which the
    skeletons and viscera of the animals and humans
    portrayed are drawn inside the outline.

  1. The Bradshaw, an ancient rock art which appears
    on caves in the Kimberley region of Western
    Australia. They are named after Joseph Bradshaw,
    who discovered them in 1891. Traditional
    aboriginal art is composed of organic colours and
    materials

11
  • Dot-painting where intricate patterns, totems
    and/or stories are created using dots and
    stencil art, particular using the motif of a
    handprint. More simple designs of straight lines,
    circles and spirals, with the hello of Australian
    Aborigines. These are thought to be the origins
    of "modern" Aboriginal Art.

12
The traditional aboriginal dot paintings usually
represent a story, generally regarding hunting or
food gathering, and usually have traditional
aboriginal symbols imbedded throughout the
painting. These symbols, when explained, give a
whole new meaning to the painting. As the
Australian Aboriginals never had a written
language, these traditional dot paintings are in
reality, the aboriginals way of writing a short
story, which has not changed for over 50,000
years.
