For thousands of years, Australian Aborigines have been making art.
A manifestation of the creative forces of Dreamtime, art is also a fundamental means of expressing individual and group identity.
Howard Morphy surveys the great variety in Aboriginal art, showing the inter-relationships between such diverse art forms as body painting, dance, the decoration of weapons and utensils, and painting on bark and canvas.
