Often the subject of Aboriginal paintings are Dreamtime stories that are also food sources. When speaking of ‘bush tucker’ in Aboriginal art, the significance is placed on the collecting of food and the rituals associated and the community activity. The single most common symbol used in bush tucker paintings is the U shape, denoting women or men. However, there may also be a circle, or concentric circles, in bush tucker paintings representing the site of where the bush tucker is being collected.
