Symbol Alphabet

Mankitya Shane Cook

Mantikya Shane Cook is an emerging Indigenous aerosol artist based in Adelaide. He has created a unique body of work that combines contemporary media with traditional design. His first solo show ‘My Time Dreaming’ was held in June 2013.

he Aboriginal symbol alphabet show in the pictures was created by myself and a Kaurna language teacher by the name of Jack Buckskin. The symbols shown in the photos have there own meanings in different tribes around Australia. I'm used these symbols to create my own alphabet. Each symbol represents a letter that has some reference to what the symbol actually means to the Aboriginal people all around Australia.
