Aboriginal Art Symbols - Woman

  • The Aboriginal art symbol for a woman is an inverted 'U' shaped curve in combination with a vertical line.
  • The 'U' shape denotes a person while the line represents a digging stick, a sharpened tool that women use to unearth bush tucker (yams, carrots, witchetty grubs, honey ants etc.).
  • Variations on this symbol may include other lines that represent a coolamon (an long oval bowl made from tree bark that is used for carrying bush tucker).
