This icon depicts the emu track. The Aboriginal men follow these tracks to hunt the emu (large flight-less bird), which is a staple food source (bush tucker) and is used for bush medicine.
In men's ceremonies the emu feathers are used for body decoration. The sinews are used in the hand-crafting of tools and weapons.
(There are various symbols depicting the emu track, depending on the artist's region)
