Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Within the “Australian Cultural Month”, an  Aboriginal art exhibition, created by indigenous people of Australia, was held on October 19-25 at the Children’s Central Library.


Indigenous people of Australia are called Aboriginal people and they created Aboriginal art by expressing and depicting their 60,000 years of history with art. The indigenous people used to use materials in the nature to tell a story when painting instruments had not been developed yet. Moreover, colors including gold, brown yellow and black, which represent Australia, are mainly used with aerial view or dot painting.  


Around 50 artworks of Mongolian students aged between 8 and 12, who were involved in training conducted by instructor of the School of Fine Arts and Design of the Mongolian State University of Art and Culture, painter G.Amgalanbaatar, were featured at the exhibition. The Aboriginal art is special as reflecting philosophy to worship, conserve and love the nature. It is also similar to ornamental art.
