Art is one of the key rituals of Aboriginal culture and was and still is, used to mark territory, record history, and tell stories about the dreamtime. But its importance to traditional Indigenous life is difficult for non-Indigenous people to understand...every drow is part of a dream of some artist, they can dream with the land where they are living, is like one picture taked from one helicopter or airplane...is just amazing. When you are looking one of this paints you are looking the spirit of this land.
Art was and remains an important component of the system of restricted knowledge, and at a more metaphysical level is the major means of recreating ancestral events, ensuring continuity with the ancestral past, and communicating with the spirit world...just enjoy with some glass of red wine and aborigen didgeridoos music...
Hace 30 minutos atras estuve en el Museo de Mount Isa en la exposicion de Arte Aborigen Australiano. Es realmente impresionate ver las obras de arte, sobretodo si uno conoce un poco sobre la sobrenatural forma de llevarla a cabo. Cada obra pintada de la misma forma desde hace miles de años atras (Los aborigenes Australianos son la raza mas pura del Planeta) consiste en sueños, durante estos ellos son capaces de elevarse por encima de la tierra y ver el desierto y las montanas desde cientos de metros de altura, en otras palabras cada pintura es una especie de plano o fotografia aerea del lugar y lo mas increible...fotos tomadas desde aviones y helicopteros comprueban la exactitud de estas obras de arte, arquitectura y union entre lo natural y lo sobrenatural...
Many of the symbols used by Aboriginal artists are a variation of lines or dots. Similar symbols can have multiple meanings according to the art region and the elaborate combination of these can tell complex Dreamtime stories
The Dreamtime (or Dreaming) is a term used to describe the period before living memory when Spirits emerged from beneath the earth and from the sky to create the land forms and all living things
For manufacturing and manufacture of paints the aborigines still using different colors of rocks, roots and blood Kangaroo as varnish to be maintained over time .... much of this art can be found intact in caverns and rocks in the middle of Australian desert
"To understand our law, our culture and our relationship to the physical and spiritual world, you must begin with land. Everything about aboriginal society is inextricably woven with, and connected to, land. Culture is the land, the land and spirituality of aboriginal people, our cultural beliefs or reason for existence is the land. You take that away and you take away our reason for existence. We have grown that land up. We are dancing, singing, and painting for the land. We are celebrating the land. Removed from our lands, we are literally removed from ourselves".
