Aboriginal art pictures

The aborigines of Australia, the Aborigines, like all nomadic peoples, have a great fascination in their art. The traditional art of the Aborigines is based on the dream time law. Spiritual connections, sustainability and responsibility for the country and the family are at the center of the culture. Its ancient rock painting dates back to 20,000 years ago and elements of this art can still be found in modern Aboriginal art.
