On the picture above you can see what the aborigines used to do in their spare time. Painting is very important for the Aboriginal people. The aboriginal art is the key of their rituals and their culture. These paintings were used to mark territory, to record history, or tell stories. The paintings were made of water mixed with ochre or rock pigments. The paintings were not only made on rocks but also on persons or bark.
