About Women's Ceremony
This painting is about women's ceremony and the women gathering food - bush tucker. All the women are painting and gathering together with food to prepare for ceremony. Songs and dances were exchanged often at larger ceremonial gatherings when many people gathered together and when trade goods were also exchanged. These gatherings often occurred at the time and place when there was plenty of food. Ceremony is the underlying basis of Aboriginal song, dance and visual arts. Ceremony contains many significant elements some which are specifically related to depict Dreaming Stories.
