Awelye- Women’s Ceremony
Title: Awelye- Women’s Ceremony
Artist: Maggie Bird
Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
Size: 30 x 30 cm
Maggie has painted a Women’s Ceremony dreaming piece, in traditional dotting style and colour. This is in a very traditional style, using patterns that the women would paint on their bodies in readiness for dancing and thanksgiving. These dotted lines would be painted around the neck and upper body, and on the tops of their arms. She has shown ceremonial dancing site where they would sit, sing and dance. A very well executed piece.
