According to Aboriginal mythology, before creation time there was nothing in the universe. No light, no human beings or animals, no trees or any vegetation. The soil was soft, one day their forefathers sprung up from underneath the soil. They decided to create the necessary things for future generations. Soon they started creating roads, gardens, trees, etc. They gradually built most of the necessary things for future generations. Two rainbow snakes were guarding their creations when the spirit people were getting tired in the evening.
Spirit people gather together and take rest in the evening. They discuss their works, drink, eat and dance. They make rules for future generations to maintain social harmony. The understanding of aboriginal spirituality is fundamental to maintain social order, respect for elders and maintain peace in the community.
Denise Doolan is a meticulous designer. She has depicted the Spirit People uniquely. They are dancing and meeting others excellently. She created the meeting place excellently by drawing the walking paths, men & women walking in a peaceful gathering. —M & S Textiles Australia
Aboriginal Art is one of the more ancient traditional arts in the world, going back approximately 50,000 years. In early days, Aboriginals did cave painting, rock painting, and sand or ground painting. The newer generations use acrylic paints on canvas to portray their Dreamtime. These Aboriginal artworks are sought after not only in Australia but worldwide. According to Aboriginal mythology, Dreamtime is the era when the world was dark. There was nothing on earth; the soil was soft. This was when the forefathers sprang up from underneath the soil and started building most of the requirements for their needs and that of future generations. They built mountains, rivers, waterholes, trees, and light gardens. —M & S Textiles Australia
