Aboriginal Art is art produced by indigenous Australians called Aborigines and the art is based on their traditional culture. Aboriginal Art covers a wide variety of mediums including painting, wood carving, sculpture, ceremonial clothing and artistic embellishments found on weapons and tools. In Aboriginal culture art is used to mark territory, record history and tell stories.
Paints for traditional Aboriginal paintings were often made from water or spittle mixed with ochre and other rock pigments. The paintings were performed on persons, rock walls or bark with tools such as primitive brushes, sticks and fingers. Sometimes paint were applied by spraying paint from the mouth.
