Everybody has some kind of appreciation in art. Their appreciation comes in different shapes so we cannot totally compare whatever we like and whatever we do not like. There are kinds of art that can be appealing to one person but would not make the same appeal to another.
This is true with aboriginal art.
There are different kinds of it and it does not beg for everyone’s attention because it is an art that upholds culture and tradition.
In this world, people of long ago already have an appreciation on whatever they can create and they use that creation not to display on exhibits but to pass on their culture to the next generations. They create drawings and other things to teach the next generation how they survived and how they were able to thrive despite the many challenges that they have faced.
When you look at them closer, we can see that they are more than just strokes and colors but it is a lesson that we can use in life especially when it comes to solving problems, finding food and even how we deal with other people. We have seen that they live simply as they display their art only along the walls of their caves or perhaps carvings on wood and stone. It is amazing how people were able to create something beautiful out of nature.
There is Only One Source
There is only one plain truth when it comes to creations like what we have been discussed on the outset. No one can make this creations or copy them if he is not an aborigine. No one can be able to fully understand their culture except that you grow up with it and descended from those people. It takes an authority to be able to accomplish these kinds of work. They cannot assume that even they are artists from their own places, they already have the capability to do so. This would be impossible because you need to come from a particular tribe that represents creation of their Aboriginal culture.
It has Special Purposes
Because their life were changed when foreign people start to settle on their lands, they tried to defend it because they own it. They make those beautiful drawings and some are even abstract to hide strategies on how to keep them away. We have seen how they used white dots in their paintings or their creations to make sure no one can understand them and to keep in secret their knowledge. That helped them to be able to preserve their lands without any disturbance from foreigners. These day you can see many of their arts through indigenous art online store.
You cannot Just Create Anything
When you are really willing to learn about them, there are ways on how we can make one. Yet, it would never be the same as the ones that are created by the people who came from that tribe. You need to learn from them first hand.
This kind of art can be something that are not from the conventional kinds that we have seen in the streets. It is more than just colors and strokes but it bears the culture and the history of the people there.
