The beauty of art goes beyond time and space. It doesn't discriminate on race, age, gender, language or culture. This is very true with Australian Aboriginal art.The traditions of the Indigenous Australians are colourfully blended and interwoven into striking strokes to convey a rich culture. What makes Australian Aboriginal art very rewarding is how the Aboriginal people have shared their long artistic traditions with the non-Indigenous society. Aboriginal art is a creative revelation of their past, life, culture and tradition. The very distinctive mark of contemporary Aboriginal art is the presence of their traditional symbols, which use conventional designs that have cultural or religious significance or power.
