I'm pretty sure Wandjinas are Aboriginal weather spirits. Supposedly they'd come out from the mountains to change the weather. I don't know that much about them, sorry.

Ancient astronauts, you also see animals given to them, perhaps sacrifices, the ones with the red crown like things on their head are probably the leaders or the ones in control of the others. They look like some type of grey aliens, with the large oval eyes. Very interesting to see.

One of the 'aliens' is getting attacked by a giant mouse.

You're right about the aboriginal part, kthxbye and goddess77, and the large animal at the bottom i think is a wombat, the smaller one CryptoRay, isnt a giant mouse, but most likely a wallaby, or pottaroo. The Wandjinas are painted on rock walls in the Kimberley (Northern Territory) often near caves. The local Aboriginal people would call on the Wandjinas for an increase in bush tucker or children.

They're so vague that you'll see what you want to see. Ancient astronauts? Quite a deduction from just a head two eyes and a mouth. (rollseyes)

That's not aboriginal artwork. The big "thing" in the bottom center of the page, it's not any kind of aboriginal artwork I've seen. It hasn't got any of the organs/bones drawn in (as they do). It may be a rock painting, but I would seriously doubt it's authenticity as an "Ancient aboriginal artpiece"
