Genuine Aboriginal Art Didgeridoos
The artwork on every Australian Aboriginal didgeridoo (didjeridu) is genuine aboriginal art and is a balance between the true cultural and traditional style of Aboriginal art, and the more modern contemporary style. Both the Aboriginal art work and the unique colours used make a bold and passionate statement about their culture. These Aboriginal wind instruments are uniquely Australian, and our online catalog reflects a diverse range of Aboriginal art for you to choose from.
How is a Didgeridoo or Didjeridu made?
Every didgeridoo (didjeridu) is sourced from no less than five different areas throughout Queensland and the Northern Territory. Under contract, Aboriginal teams source and cut Wooly Butt and Yellow Box trees that have had the heart wood eaten out by termites. This is the original material from which the didgeridoo is made. These blanks are then sized, treated, sealed and have each end slightly honed out ready for shipping.
The blanks are then taken to the warehouse where they are prepared for painting. After being painted it is then signed by the artist and the final artwork is sealed with a special sealant. Each Aboriginal Art didgeridoo (didjeridu) is then tagged and a natural bee's wax mouthpiece is fitted in readiness for the customer.
Aboriginal Art - the meaning on the Didgeridoo
Each piece of Aboriginal art is a story and has a meaning. Art for the aboriginal people is about the transfer of knowledge and information down through the generations. Didgeridoo (didjeridu) styles of dot work and crosshatching are unique to areas and regions throughout Australia and are said to be timeless.
Aboriginal art, as with many other aspects of the culture, holds much significance for Aborigines. Through the didgeridoo (didjeridu), they tell stories, depict scenes and convey messages, and the artists who produce the didgeridoo continue this tradition.
