The bold linear patterns of stripes and curves throughout Minnie’s painting depicts the women's ceremonial body paint design as well as a map of her country. Ceremonial songs relate to the Dreamtime stories of Ancestral Travel and and the creative force of  plants, animals and natural elements. Awelye-Women’s ceremony demonstrates respect for the land and ensures abundance, increase, well-being and happiness within the artist's clan and wider community.
