The Aboriginal rock paintings of Australia are one of the world's oldest art forms. The images represent both the real world and the dreamtime world, spirits, stories, people and animals. These are found at sites all over Australia, from the Kimberleys to Victoria. This book presents a record of these paintings, through photographs and accompanying text that explains their history, significance and conservation. The book also includes Aboriginal stories that are illustrated by the paintings.
