dc.description.abstractIn 2002,we combined the ongoing archaeological excavation to a survey of cliff painting in Waanyi . We recorded a variety of themes,styles,and skills,and recorded the oral history related from the Waanyi old people,making evaluation and judgment with the archaeological records. We also recorded a lot of patterns like rainbows,including red and yellow ones,as well as a gorgeous and huge red yellow rainbow snake. We discussed these and other stories of travel,color pigment with the use of local stone as a tool and the image marking important spiritual place. A network connecting across northern and central Australia community has been highlighted. Our conclusion is: color is fundamental in the expression and maintenance of regional relations and plays an important role in relations between the ancients and the other groups. When compared them to the colors used by other aboriginal,we can see important local differences. This study emphasizes the universal value of color research for archaeology
