Description

The bold linear pattern throughout Molly's painting, illustrates Awelye (Women's Ceremonial Body Paint Design). After smearing their bodies with animal fat, the women trace these designs onto their breasts, arms and thighs, singing as each woman takes her turn to be 'painted-up.' Awelye demonstrates respect for the land. In performing these ceremonies they ensure well-being and happiness within their communities. The Awelye in Molly's painting is associated with Anthep (Ceremonial Dance).
