Body Paint by Thelma Dixon
90cm x 30cm
Private Art Collection
This eclectic coloured piece depicts women's ceremonial body paint designs.
The combination of vibrant colours and pastels made it an obvious choice to use for Desert Doll's first range of printed items.
Equally, the subject matter is something many people can relate to, if not directly. Women's ceremony is about women coming together, not just for the subject of the ceremony, but to be together. The process of painting each other, of singing, dancing and celebrating together is important.
