Painted Dancer MBS0155-Josie Kunoth Petyarre

Carved from the wood of trees found in Utopia, this sculpture shows a painted dancer prepared to sing and dance for ceremony.

The linear designs represent awelye (women's ceremony and body paint designs). These designs are painted onto the chest, breasts, arms and thighs. Powders ground from ochre (clays), charcoal and ash are used as body paint and applied with a flat stick with soft padding.
