Some of the oldest examples that survived so far are found the rock engravings in the Pilbara in Western Australia and in the Olay area of South Australia which may be as much as 40 000 years old.

Decoration, Body painting, and personal adornment traditionally take deep spiritual impact for Australian Aboriginal people. Body painting is passed out within strict conventions that are primarily connected to spiritual matters, although the creative nature of these activities is also acknowledged.
The motifs or particular designs used by individuals reflect their social position and relationship to their family group and also to particular ancestors, totemic animals and tracts of land.
People are not free to transform their look at will; they must conform to respected patterns. In a lot of situations individuals are completely transformed so that they turn into the spirit ancestor they are portraying in dance.
