Abie Loy Kemarre

/ Awelye

/ Cat.No: 1705.1

The title of this painting is Body Paint. Abie paints this story in her own creative way and in line with Aboriginal ancient tradition which carries deep spiritual significance for her People. It is related to spiritual matters and the specific designs and motifs used may reveal her relationships to family groups, social position, tribe, ancestors, totemic fauna and other aspects of traditional life.

There are very strict guidelines to how the body painting is carried out and an Aboriginal person is not allowed to just use any motives. They must follow traditional, respected patterns.
