One way to gain access to another culture is through its distinctive art. A good example of this is provided in Wisdom from the Earth: The Living Legacy of the Aboriginal Dreamtime. Anna Voight and Neville Drury examine the history, ceremonies, and cosmology of these indigenous people, illustrating many of their points with color photographs of ancient and contemporary Aboriginal art. Here are paintings of the Rainbow Serpent, the Creator of Life; representations of Dreamtime ancestors; and story paintings about the cycles of life.
