Three more from my collection of 'Martin Boyd' pottery plates. These three have an indigenous hunting - dream time theme.

Thank you for looking.

Aboriginal Art Facts:
“Art Was their Written Language”

Aboriginal People passed their knowledge, culture and beliefs on the new generations through storytelling, dance and song. They never had a written language, so there is no material that we can read that would be written by early Aboriginal people. They did however have a way to preserve their customs and beliefs for future generations, and it was through their art. The art of Australian indigenous people always has a meaning, it can be about their lifestyle, their everyday life, beliefs, customs or ceremonies. A piece of art of an animal for example means more than just a picture of an animal, it can be their creation being, associated with their mythology. A few added symbols can turn a painting into a story.

    I love these three! Remember too that this was before the Papunya Tukla School of art. These are based on what little was available on indigenous art in the fifties!
    Thank you for making these available to an international audience!
