More Info...

Brushes were made from tufts of fur or bark, feathers and sticks
Ancient paintings in caves sometimes describe events that can be scientifically proven.
Like the rising of the seas, the change from lush forest to desert, and stars disappearing.
These are ancient events, but Aboriginal elders say that we come from this country and we have always been here from way, way back in the Dreamtime.
So that’s how we know about them.

To make these ancient pigments stick, honey or tree sap was used, or sometimes just water and it was touched up regularly at ceremonies..........
Ochres have a long history with the human race and many have mythological and traditional associations with Aboriginee people going back hundreds of centuries.
Ochre is very important for body painting to this very day.Aboriginal dancers and performers in the bush or in the city still re enact ancient adventures of the dream time in their dances.

My ancestors' traditional art style is stencil art. That’s where you spray the ochre with the mouth. 

This ancient stencil art form was once practised all over the world but now probably Australia would have the most extensive stencil art sites.
Boomerangs, stone axes, hand signals, even animals were sprayed over as stencils. 

These paintings on cave walls in ochre told stories, recorded history and declared ownership.Simple line and dot paintings were used to record the many myths and legends of the tribe.They could be interpreted in many ways so only the fully initiated elders knew the full story......Figures and symbols were carved into rocks and cave walls by patiently tapping with a harder rock....... And we still wear ancient traditional ochre designs painted on our bodies for ceremony and paint with ochres.
