Description

Tanya paints Awelye (Women's Ceremony). Women are depicted by the 'U' motifs. Dancing sticks and coolamons (carved wooden bowls) which are sacred ceremonial objects are also featured. They are usually decorated with feathers and ochre paints. For a Women's Ceremony, the women sing songs and make rhythm as each woman takes her turn to be 'painted-up'. Powders ground from ochre (clays), charcoal and ash are mixed with animal fat or blood and used as body paint. Tanya likes to use traditional ochre colours in the background design to reflect the rich sand hill country of Central Australia.
