The Aborigine people of Australia make use of many common symbols in their artwork. Although these vary from region to region, they’re generally understood and form an important part of Australian Indigenous art. A few of the more common ones, and some variations, are shown here. The meaning of the symbols can change depending on the context of the story. To see more work by Derek Jungarrayi Thompson, Tjimpuna Williams, and others, visit www.ernabellaarts.com.au.
