About Women's Ceremony
The painting depicts the journey tracks (curvy lines) of Aboriginal women gathering at ceremonial or meeting places (concentric circles). All the women are painting and gathering together with food to prepare for ceremony. Songs and dances are exchanged often at large ceremonial gatherings when many people gather together and when trade goods are also exchanged. These gatherings often occur at the time and place when there is plenty of food. Ceremony is the underlying basis of Aboriginal song, music, dance and visual arts. Ceremony contains many significant elements some of which are specifically related to the movements and activities of Ancestral Tjukurrpa Women.
