OTHER NOTES:
This painting depicts the Awelye ceremonial body paint design used by the women in the ceremony. These designs are painted onto the chest, breasts, arms and thighs. Powders ground from ohre (clays), charcoal and ash are used as body paint and applied with a flat stick with soft padding. They call this stick ''typale''. The women sing the songs associated with their awelye as each women takes her turn to be ''painted-up''. Women perform awelye ceremonies to demonstrate respect for their country and the total well-being and health of their community.
