Aboriginal Animal Paintings

On this page you can explore our extensive collection of Aboriginal artworks that depict animals.

For Indigenous Australians, animals are an important partner in life, deserving the utmost respect. They are vital to ensure survival, but they are also revered and feature predominantly in the ancient Dreamtime stories.

They are depicted in prehistoric Aboriginal rock art and to this day Indigenous Australian artists continue to represent them in their creative expressions. The variety of styles is truly mesmerising, from modern figurative to symbolic, and the iconic ‘x-ray’ style typically found on bark paintings.
