DREAMTIME: Art of the First Australians

DREAMTIME: ART OF THE FIRST AUSTRALIANS presents an introduction to the creativity of a people whose ancestors traveled form Southeast Asia more than 40,000 years ago to inhabit the land mass now known as Australia. Today, Aboriginal art is a bridge to their ancient traditions and beliefs of an eternal “Dreamtime”, the concept of a time in which creative acts were performed by spirits who established the patterns of nature and life and created man’s environment.
