Product Description

In this painting Awelye, Betty depicts the designs that the woman would paint on their bodies and the dancing lines, which are made in the sand during ceremony. In the Awelye ceremonies, woman pays respect to their ancestors.

The large concentric circle represents the ceremonial sites and the small circles refer to the bush melon fruit, which once grew plentiful, but now days difficult to find.

Betty uses vivid colours to depict these designs in her work.
