    No they were not the ones i was thinking about. I just came across them
    while i was trying to find the one i was on about (with no success).

    Didn't mean that the idea of a pre Aboriginal people as such, but rather a
    tribe that did not survive to modern times. This is presumed because the
    style differs from the art that is known. I assume each tribe or group have
    their own stories, histories and therefore styles and types of art and which
    makes then different from others.
