omparative Essay on Aboriginal Art and Chinese Art The two ancient art cultures that I will be studying will be Chinese art and Aboriginal art Both these cultures have evidence of artwork dating back as far as a couple of thousand years ago Australian Aboriginal contemporary traditional work depicts themes connected to the Dreamtime and is frequently called Dreamings This has nothing to do with sleep or the western concept for the word dream The Dreamtime is the period in which the first ancestors of men -- spirits heroes performed creative acts and heroines who established the pattern of nature and life and created mans environment This included all the trees man woman and all animals The Dreamtime is a process as well as a period it had its beginning when the world was young and unformed but it has never ceased The ancestor who established law and patterns of behaviour is as alive today as when he performed his original creative acts The sacred past the Dreamtime is for Aborigines also the sacred present the Eternal Dreamtime About 140000 years ago a large amount of evaporated ocean water became locked up on land in the form of glaciers resulting in a significant drop in sea level This condition occurred intermittently throughout the next 90000 years At times of major glaciation the Australian land mass could be reached from central Asia by multiple one day sea passages a one day passage being 50 miles on a large raft the probable vessel of the time After global warming and the consequent rise in sea level that same journey would have been almost impossible without modern navigational equipment Sometime during the glaciation human beings established themselves on the island continent Radiocarbon dating nets this event at a minimum of 45000 years ago We do not know where they came from although Asia is a good guess Scientific analysis has failed to match them
