To the symbols content of the visual representations by the Australian Aborigines and to the continuation of their religious motives up to the present

Dr. Christine Pellech

The symbolism of the visual representations of the Australian Aborigines can be reduced to a tradition which may be proved up to the "Dreamtime", this is the time since which the old myths are hand down, from about 75.000 years. The religious symbols appearing in the same form worldwide from the oldest cultures up to now with the same religious signification, a diffusionistic tradition of these mystical symbols must be supposed.
