Dots and Dreamtime


As you probably know, I love dots. So do the Aboriginal peoples of Australia. Dots are a common element in their work. Aborigines call the beginning of the world the "Dreaming," or "Dreamtime." In the "Dreamtime," aboriginal "Ancestors" rose from below the earth to form various parts of nature including animals, bodies of water, and the sky.

Yes Peter...It's All Dots,All We!as my little book says and the dot paintings you describe are very ancient and were once a part of connecting to the Universe.Also "dot painting" can transport the artist and the observer into a calm and connected state of being.DotWave!kennedy
