Aboriginal Tourism - Indigenous Australia - Iconography and Symbols
The dotted motifs of much of today’s Aboriginal modern design work has become the trademark of the contemporary Aboriginal Art movement. Its iconic status developed from a culture stretching back into the history of an ancient land, evolving and weaving into desert dreamtime stories.

Imagery of animals and wildlife is often depicted as foot steps and tracks, reflecting the real life tracks often left in the sands of animals that have passed by.

Other images that are often found in dreamtime stories or are the totem of the artist can also be depicted in a more recognisable form, sometimes as outlines of the animal, sometimes in x-ray like forms, often stylised.

Most depiction of wildlife also provide food for Aboriginal people. Images of honey ants, witchetty grubs and goannas, may appear in ‘Bush Tucker’ artwork, and are not necessarily limited to those alone.
