Dot painting has become a cultural icon that has become immediately recognisable worldwide as Indigenous Australian art. This video explores the origins of dot painting from its original use as temporary ground markings in sacred rituals which were danced over and subsequently destroyed. Despite it having been developed as an art form over millennia, Aboriginal dot painting has only made the transition to canvas during the last 30 years and in that short time has become one of the most important movements in modern art! The meanings, interpretations and variations between tribal groups are explained in this engrossing and informative video.
