With over 300 illustrations and 155 color plates, Dreamings presents a comprehensive overview of Aboriginal art and aesthetics as they are integrated within a distinctive Aboriginal tradition.The traditional art forms of the Aborigines are a manifestation of their religious beliefs,which are based on a concept known as the Dreaming.The Dreaming is the itinerary of the Ancestral Beings’travels across the landscape,as well as the sacred dimension of the present, the driving force which,for the Aborigines, underlies the here and now.
