Arlkeny (Mens Body Paint) MB042014-Lindsay Bird Mpetyane

The designs in Lindsay's painting signify Arlkeny (men's ceremonial body paint designs). These designs are painted onto the men's bodies during ceremonies. Powders ground from red and yellow ochre (clays), charcoal and ash are used as body paint. These ceremonies are very sacred to Lindsay and are performed for the ancient Dreamtime stories belonging to Ilkawerne country.

The background dotting represents the colours of Lindsay's country, Ilkawerne.
