Women’s Ceremony – 2021
Paintings – Acrylic on Canvas – 30 x 30 cm (pre-stretched)
There are many different ceremonies which are important to women’s culture. Some are associated with dance, some with healing and medicine and some with gathering and preparing bush foods. This painting depicts elements of all these traditions – dance costume, bush medicine plants, food gathering sites and sacred sites. Many of these traditions are still practiced and the teachings passed on from mother to daughter and grand daughters.
