How is Rock Art used?

 

• To communicate

 

• To pass on knowledge first hand and across generations

 

• To express identity

 

• To express relationships to the land, other people and other species

 

• To record history and events

 

• To make connections to the land

 

• To make connections to people who came before

 


Four simple reasons why rock art is so important:

• It truly is our nation’s crown jewels

 

• It’s an utterly unique visual archive of Australia’s history going back at least 15,000 years

 

• It gives us a clear window back into our recent and ancient pasts

 

• It is valued by the Indigenous groups from remote Arnhem Land to capital cities
