The Aboriginal people of Australia have an ancient tradition of art. It is thought that their art is one of the oldest, continuous illustrations of human thought.

What is Aboriginal Art is a succinct guide to Aboriginal art outlining the foundations and history and cultural significance of Indigenous rock painting, bark painting, carvings, sculpture and ‘modern’ dot paintings that emerged during the Papunya period. Author Margo Birnburg decodes common signs and symbols and explains the ancient and modern origins of Aboriginal iconography making this an excellent starter book for anyone keen to learn more.
