Aboriginal Art Symbols - Human Footprint

  • The Aboriginal art symbol for a human footprint is an inverted 'U' shaped curve (the symbol for a person) with five protruding digits that represent our five toes.

  • This symbol is repeated in alternate steps across the picture plane to suggest the direction that the person is taking.
  • An alternative to this symbol is to use the shape of an actual footprint.
  • These symbols can be used for both male and female figures depending on the context.
