My Mother's Country by Betty Mbitjana

30cm x 30cm

100% original and ethically sourced

The symbols in this painting map some of the significant sites of Atnwengerrp country, Betty's mother’s country, as well as land formations such as sand hills, campsites, flora, fauna, awelye (women’s ceremony), spiritual figures 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. 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.

Betty's mother was a renowned aboriginal artist named Minnie Pwerle who passed away in 1996. Her work was famous for these markings and Betty was given permission by her family after her passing to continue to paint in this style.

Painted with Titanium White on a black background.
