The product was designed and made by Global Gumnuts and Nursery, the Symbols were designed by the artist. All Copyright fees, transfer fees, royalty fees and work done by the artist to design the symbols were paid to the artist by Global Gumnuts and Nursery according to the license between both parties.

The symbols the traditional custodians use in their art are part of a unique visual language and vary widely between the many different Aboriginal cultures found across Australia, there are a number of useful starting points that can help identify potential meanings. These symbols can provide a broader familiarity with their meaning when appreciating authentic Aboriginal Art.

Every individual has a different way of putting the symbols together to best represent the stories as they wanted to tell them, or as they were culturally obliged to use them. To accurately understand what Aboriginal symbols mean in an artwork, you need to have information direct from the artist.

WARNING: Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this website may contain images and/or names of people who have since passed away.

Acknowledgments:
These Symbols can be found in Papunya Central Desert art, predominantly of the Luritja / Pintupi language groups. The symbols can also be part of a unique visual language which is also used in designs painted on the skin and in elaborate ceremonial ground paintings. ~ Established on information from “Papunya Tula” by Geoffrey Bardon.

Together we can share Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander culture.
