Aboriginal Tourism - Indigenous Australia - Iconography and Symbols
The dotted motifs of much of today's Aboriginal modern design work has become the trademark of the contemporary Aboriginal Art movement. Its iconic status developed from a culture stretching back into the history of an ancient land, evolving and weaving into desert dreamtime stories.

One of the popular topics depicted in many artworks include imagery of bush tucker, whether it is from the iconic honey ants, witchetty grubs, bush banana, bush tomatoes etc. In their depiction, many artist stamp their own unique way of portraying the bush tucker, whether it is a close facsimile of the bush tucker or a modern take that may emphasise a particular pattern. Specific types of bush food can vary in the way it is depicted, although often the way a plant is painted in artwork can be similar, the style being passed down through families of artists.
