Rock Art Contact Period. When Indigenous Australians first came into contact with Europeans their art detailed remarkable observations – people with white skin, ships, guns and horses all made initial big impressions. Then, as both groups intermingled and got to know each other, Aboriginal people drew images more as social reportage for others who would not, or could not, venture out of remote locations. Much of this "Contact Art" is being rediscovered in Arnhem Land today.
