Look deep into an Ancient culture, and decode a visual language of simple dots and lines! Use these symbols to create a meaningful design of your own.
Traditional Aboriginal artwork is most known for its distinctive use of dots and lines. These dots and lines have meanings within the drawings. For example, a curvy line could represent rain or a river. A "U" shape is the symbol of a person.
