    Our vibrant and dynamic artists are from the Utopia region; a large remote area of Central Australia which, until recently, had no government funded art centre. As a result of their pioneering efforts, they have one of the strongest and richest art histories.

    This is an intricate representation of Colleen Wallace's Dreamtime Sisters.

    The Dreamtime Sisters are good spirits dancing the awelye (women’s ceremony) and looking after Colleen's country, Arnumarra, which lies to the north east of Alice Springs in Central Australia. Colleen says these sisters were once living people; her ancestors.

    The Sisters are painted with ceremonial designs just as they are illustrated on the walls of a sacred site on Colleen's country. 

    There are also traditional U shape symbols depicting women of Colleen's country. These symbols are decorated with body paint designs; note the arc linear pattern on their chest and lines going down their arms.
