A selection of Australian Aboriginal paintings created as part of the ceremonies celebrating Jukurrpa or Dreamtime. Tjukurrpa can be interpreted as an embodiment of creation that gives meaning to everything for the Australian Aboriginal people. It establishes the rules governing relationships between the people, land, animals and all things organic, inorganic and spiritual existing in tribal territories. These relationships, their details and stories are the inspiration of the Tjukurrpa paintings.
