Australian Aboriginal Dot Paintings

When we are in Coober Pedy, we purchase opal from some of the local indigenous community (Aborigines). From time to time, they also show us dot paintings that they have made and we sometimes buy some of these also.

All of our dot paintings are authentic, aboriginal made dot paintings. The name of each artist is on the back of the painting and some have a small story that describes what the painting is about. This information was given to us by the artist that sold us the painting.

Native Indigenous Australian people have been painting images in caves for possibly as long as 40,000 years. These paintings along with dot paintings, illustrate the legends and stories from the Dreamtime, a period in time when mythical beings created the people, places and other forces on the earth. Many of these beautiful dot paintings can be hung whichever way the viewer wishes.
