Australian Aboriginal art
dot painted emu eggs


Dot painting is a traditional desert aboriginal art technique. The technique finds its way to many surfaces. Canvas and art board are the major media. But pottery also gets the technique and, in this case, emu eggs. Emu eggs are important to Australian Aborigines and their ceation story (The Dreamtime.) Here's a short video talking about the emu that appears in the Milky Way as a signal that it is time to gether emu eggs.

The eggs to be painted are punctured on one end and the contents withdrawn. The hollow egg is then painted in dot patterns.
