Here we have a painting where the body paint designs are one element of a painting with many facets.
This painting is a celebration of three main Dreaming stories for women of Ilkawerne country; Alpar Seed, Bush Plum and Mulga Seed.
Designs depict seeds, plums, flowers and coolomons (carved wooden bowls), but also the intricate linear patterns of ceremonial body paint designs can be found throughout. Ceremony is often part of every story and can be seen like this in many different paintings.
