Betty paints “My Mother’s Story”, awelye (women’s ceremonial body paint designs) for the ancestral dreamtime stories of the anemangkerr (bush melon and tomato) which belong to her mother’s country.
In this work the concentric circles represent a women’s ceremony site, while the other forms represent women painted with ceremonial body paint.Share
