Feature: My Mother's Country by Betty Mbitjana

March 03, 2020 1 min read

Black and white painting by Betty Mbitjana. 90cm x 90cm.

This 90cm x 90cm painting by Betty Mbitjana beats to its own rhythm. Both striking and simple in black and white, it will humbly work in many spaces, bringing a sense of elegance, awe and meaning.

The patterns and symbols map significant sites on Atnwengerrp country, Betty's mother’s country, as well as Awelye (women’s ceremonial body paint designs) and ancestral dancing tracks as they can still be seen today, etched in the rocks at Anthep.

Anthep is an ancestral place that remains the most significant site on Atnwengerrp country. Ceremony and dance are still performed there and it is a place where everyone - men, women and children - can meet together and camp. It is also a place where permanent water can be found.
