Why is Aboriginal art so important By gavin Liu

Why do they use symbols?

They can know what tribe he or she is in, because the symbols are special to each tribe. They use symbols to talk and make stories because they don't use letters to write. They use circles to show waterholes or camp sites.

Where do they paint?

They paint on their bodies and on rocks and bark from a tree. They use dots in their paintings.
