Australian culture : dot painting by Australian Aborigines

 

 

What is the technique used by the Australian Aborigines to paint? Pointillism or “dot-painting” is the style that made Aboriginal painting known throughout the world. If this style is practiced above all by artists from the central desert, its use can be found under the brushes of Aboriginal painters living in Australian tropical areas.

60,000 Years of Aboriginal Culture

Aboriginal culture dates back as far as 60,000 years, possibly longer.  This is when Aboriginal people first settled in what is now known as Australia.  The first evidence of Aboriginal ethos or philosophy is evident in the still visible rock art which dates back more than 20,000 years.

Ochres were used to paint on rocks.  Archaeologists have been able to date remains and findings as far back as 40,000 to 60,000 years from discoveries of primal campsites.
