Title: Mother's Country, Size 1000x2100


This painting depicts " Mother's Country" These shapes are the areas where she has over painted to conceal symbols of sacred story that are painted underneath and not meant to be seen. Such areas refer to secret camp-sites that people made as they trekked across the country in search of food, women's coolamons used to collect fruit and berries and/or forms of women's body that are adorned with paint for ceremony. Sometimes she incorporates the linear patterns to represent women's body designs - stripes that are traditionally applied to breasts, arms and legs for ceremonies known as Awelye.
