Dreaming

The ‘Mountain Devil Dreaming’ Aboriginal art style refers to the Thorny Devil Lizard that is found throughout Central Australia. The lizard is a small but fearsome looking creature that belies its harmless and placid nature. The ‘thorny’ skin protects the lizard from predators and creates an effective camouflage that allows it to blend easily into the environment, making it a very elusive creature to see and catch.
