Aboriginal art is one of the oldest art forms known to man. This art form consists of symbols as a means of communication. These symbols stood for their lives, their rituals, their food and their customs. These works of art were used mostly in religious ceremonies. Aboriginal art focused on how the land was formed and consisted mainly of animals and patterns. The artists only used colours found in nature. Soil was red, brown or yellow. The Aboriginals created their works only on things that are found in nature; bark, logs, rocks and trees. The backgrounds were never blank; there was a sense of movement from the continuous use of dots and patterns in the work.
