System Of Symbols

System Of Symbols

Australian Aboriginal dreamtime painting at first looks like a non-objective work filled with beautiful patterns. These patterns are really symbols, and when used together form a story associated with spiritual journeys or mythological stories of creation. Each of the squiggles in Paddy Carroll Tjungurrayi’s Witchetty Grub Dreaming represents something, such as fire, waterhole, campsite, family, trail, etc. Look at what the symbols represent, and figure out what story Tjungurrayi (or others) is telling. Be concise about 200 words.
