Summary
The World Art & Culture series looks at cultures around the world, using artifacts as primary sources to explain how and what we can learn about a culture through its art. From painting to sculpture, textiles to metalwork, architecture to musical instruments, the series explores a fascinating and thought-provoking variety of arts, crafts, designs, and styles. Arts and crafts offer a window into Aboriginal culture, reflecting its history, technology, beliefs, and everyday life. Every piece of Aboriginal art tells us something about the environment and the culture in which it was developed, so that we can see how and why people make their art
