Aboriginal Art is one of the more ancient traditional arts in the world, going back approximately 50,000 years. In early days, Aboriginal artists, depicted their dreaming of mountains, rivers, waterholes, trees, animals etc. on the caves, rocks with stone-age rock chisels. They also used cave painting and sand or ground painting to express their dreaming. Later, the newer generations use acrylic paints on canvas to portray their Dreamtime.
A variety of colours are used in their art symbolizing various artefacts, designs and motifs such as totems featuring Kangaroos, Dingoes, Turtles etc. A few groups use dots to portray their dreaming while a few others use lines in doing so. These artworks are often referred to Dot Painting for the same reason. Artefacts such as Boomerangs, Didgeridoos are also depicted in their rock-art.
