Description - Dreamings: Art from Aboriginal Australia by Peter Sutton
Australian Aboriginal art is the oldest continuous art tradition in the world. Although research has been limited, it is now clear that various elements in its abstract forms represent specific themes, and that they are aids in the myths of their origins. In collaboration with a major exhibition of Aboriginal art, this book provides a complete study of the role of the Aboriginal artist and his work in a traditional context, and the adaption and evolution of that work in response to outside contact and interest.
