Aboriginal Art has survived for over thousands of years and continues to be one of the oldest art forms practiced today.
Aboriginal Art consists of symbols. These symbols were used as a means of communication; communication of their lives on earth, their rituals, food, customs and also to show constellations and for ritual decorations. These works were almost always ceremonial or religious.

Symbols were used in order to show the presence of different things or objects that existed around them.
