Aboriginal Art Symbols

  • Aboriginal Symbols are a visual language that communicates information about the cultural life of indigenous Australians.
  • Symbols and graphic images are used as the elements of Aboriginal Art to tell a story or share knowledge.
  • Their combination and context are the key to their meaning.
  • The meaning of certain symbols can vary between individual artists and different language groups.
  • Most of symbols that you see in Aboriginal artworks are commonplace and considered acceptable for public display. However, many symbols have secret and sacred meanings and should only be viewed by initiated individuals.

 

  • The symbols and images used to create our art lessons are taken from the two pages above. These illustrations are free to download and and print for your own use. The symbols and images are by no means exclusive and you should feel free to add your own.
