Description

Weida's painting represents Awelye (Women's Ceremony and Body Paint Designs) ceremonies to look after the country and to promote health and wellbeing in the community.

The linear patterns relate to body paint designs associated to the ceremony. The women paint their bodies with ochres onto the chest, breast, upper arms and navel. The background pattern indicates design elements associated to Weida's country.
