Aboriginal art at WSU

I visited WSU's art gallery yesterday and was pleasantly surprised at the exhibit- Contemporary Australian Aboriginal Art.  Lots of color and visual texture.  Fun to learn that they use symbols which have specific meaning throughout the design and texture.  An example is a horseshoe shape in the middle of a circle means woman or adult.  This symbol may be repeated to create a design within the whole piece.  It was fun to see this work.
