Our Alien Ancestry:
Original Art & Magic
Chapter 21 Replay
Returning to the central theme and Australia, this presentation focuses on two aspects of Old Way Culture: art and magic.
Original art is unique in that the term ‘art’ falls well short, it is so much more than just colour and brush. It includes storytelling, the Dreaming, history, sacred sites, codes of behaviour and a multitude of cultural pursuits. Both Uncle Alan and Peter will be sharing not just their work, but the way it came about, the cultural imperatives along with the protocol and stages of creation that must be respected before the paint and brush come into play. The way they work means that the stories behind each painting must be fully understood, and equally, they must have permission before anything else.
