Aboriginal Art, Paperback

Aboriginal Art Paperback

Part of the Art & Ideas series


For thousands of years, Australian Aborigines have been making art.

A manifestation of the creative forces of Dreamtime, art is also a fundamental means of expressing individual and group identity.

Howard Morphy surveys the great variety in Aboriginal art, showing the inter-relationships between such diverse art forms as body painting, dance, the decoration of weapons and utensils, and painting on bark and canvas.
