    About Aboriginal Art & Symbols

    “There is no written language for Australian Aboriginal People so in order to convey their important cultural stories through the generations it is portrayed by symbols/icons through their artwork.

    It is imperative to pass on information to preserve their culture. Indigenous art is centered on story telling. It is used as a chronicle to convey knowledge of the land, events and beliefs of the Aboriginal people.

    The use of symbols is an alternate way to writing down stories of cultural significance, teaching survival and use of the land.” Source
