Aboriginal Art Symbols - People sitting around a campsite.

The Aboriginal art symbol for people sitting uses a combination of icons where several figures are arranged around the symbol for a campsite or waterhole.

  • Variations on this symbol may use different attributes (spears, shields, boomerangs, digging sticks, coolamons) to distinguish between men and women.

  • Although there are four figures symmetrically arranged in our illustration, any number may be used in a more informal layout.

Some of the topics in our Aboriginal Art pages are illustrated with a painting that was inspired by the theme of that page. The symbols and images used to create them are taken from the sheets above which are freely available as pdf. files for you to download to help with drawing your own artworks.
