Ochre Gathering Place – Women’s Ceremony – 2022
Paintings – Acrylic on Canvas – 40 x 40 cm (pre-stretched)
During women’s ceremony we paint patterns on our bodies that come from the dreamtime. There are 3 colours of ochre that are used for this and each one has a different meaning. Ochres come from the earth in our country and are gathered by women before the ceremony time. There are special, sacred places where we find these colours.
