Central Art Aboriginal Art Store
Medium: Acrylic on Belgian Linen
With the use of Aboriginal iconography this beautiful illustrated artwork depicts various ceremonial places and travelling lines, which are left imprinted in the sand by the women.
The small circles represent the ceremonial places, where the women gathered and performed dance cycles and song lines. The U shaped motifs with lines across represent body paint designs, which are smeared using ochres, onto certain parts of the upper body and thighs. This is an important ritual for women's ceremonies.
