Australian aborigines called the most ancient living cultures on the planet. English colonists called locals «Aboriginal», that literally means «from the beginning of the» (from the Latin «aborigene»). Culture of Australian residents studied little, researchers remain mysteries.

Means for self-expression among residents of Australia original and simple: wood carving, drawing ornaments and drawings on the ground, on household items, on weapons, ceremonial objects, on the rocks and trees. Also common modeling of beeswax and prints on the skin.

More often in pictures of Aboriginal researchers see scenes from everyday life, However, Australian residents draw inspiration for their paintings of the myths and legends. The artist awake going through all the display, tying ourselves visible means of commu. So sensitive perception of maximally approximated to the phenomena of nature and the artist's spiritual heroes, shown in figures.

to convey ideas, not only do a kind of snapshot of what is happening in reality. The form of Aboriginal art was and remains the symbolic. It is not intended to transfer the image complete similarities with object, This is why most drawings and intricate patterns seem to people from other cultures meaningless.

In Australia you can find many pictures, performed on the tree bark, most commonly eucalyptus, as well as the sacred rocks. Not all residents were able to leave the pictures on the rocks and trees. The artist was obliged to understand the meaning of styles, but it was only available to commemorate the. For example, pictures or lines, that was carved ochre, can contribute to a good harvest and an increase in animal populations. Same left unattended and faded ornaments could cause drought, bring fail in finding food and other matters.

In various parts of the continent, the number of pictures and objects of art ranged. Very few pictures left in Tasmania – so far only a few images, made on the bark and carved on the rocks. Fewer images observed in the arid regions of the continent, in such places the drawings do not differ a strong diversity. This may be due to the fact, that local residents, it was difficult to find food and survive in these circumstances. But even here you can find ornaments on tree bark, land, rocks, aborigines were decorated with weapons and painted their own body.

Eastern Australia is rich in paintings of the Australian aborigines, especially the area is known for the art of carving in the trees. The northern part of Australia – a treasure trove of fine Aboriginal art. And the most expressive masterpieces are found on the peninsula Arnlend, where locals have devoted a lot of time creating ceremonial items, as well as colorful drawings on trees and rocks.

It is important to mention the so-called «x-ray pictures», common not only in Australia, but in the art of some nationalities and Siberia. They are characterized by the fact, that, in addition to the appearance of animals, the artist portrayed their inner organs.

Known, that aborigines can't watch normal movies, We look with great pleasure. Fact, that they only see the fast-changing frames, not merged in motion. Particular aboriginal vision, they see faster civilized people. However, for civilization Aboriginal art is often a mysterious and unfathomable. For the artists themselves as their paintings – realism.
