OTHER NOTES:
This painting depicts Awelye the womens ceremonial design. After smearing their bodies with animal fat, the women trace the designs onto their breasts, arms and thighs singing as each woman has a turn to be ''painted up''. The songs relate to the Dreamtime stories of Ancestral Travel and other plants, animals and natural forces. Awely-Womens ceremony demonstrates respect for the land and in performing these ceremonies they ensure well being and happiness within the communities.
