Aboriginal culture dates back as far as between 60,000 to 80,000 years. The first evidence of Aboriginal ethos or philosophy is evident in the still visible rock art which dates back more than 20,000 years.
Ochres; Black, Red, Yellow and White were used to paint during ceremonies, rocks, barks and artefacts.
Aboriginal art is centered on story telling. It is used as a chronicle to convey knowledge of the land, events and beliefs of Aboriginal people.
We use symbols is an alternate way to writing down stories of cultural significance, teaching survival and use of the land. Our Art depicts the physical and spiritual connection we as Aboriginal people have to our lands.
