Aboriginal Art Symbols - Star

  • The Aboriginal art symbol for a star is a large central ring surrounded by smaller rings arranged like the numbers on a clock. This symbol works visually on two levels: as an individual star where the smaller rings provide its sparkle, or as a group of stars that form a constellation.
  • The Aboriginal people have always used the stars for navigation, and as a calendar for the hunting and gathering of seasonal food and provisions.
  • Aboriginal astronomy assigns spiritual and moral meanings to the motion of the stars and planets which are communicated through ‘dreaming stories’.
