DescriptionBody Painting 2 Blue by Anna Pitjara. In the Aboriginal Culture, rituals and ceremonies are a constant source for everyone in the community to gather and celebrate the occasion. While doing so, the artists (dancers) paint their bodies with the theme of the ritual with various motifs and designs. There are strict regulations on how the artists are to paint their bodies based on their tribe and country. They generally paint the ritual designs on their bodies with clay, ochre, pink, red, yellow and white. Some of these rituals last for days. So, they use paints mixed with animal fats so that the paints stay longer. The wonderful hues and dynamic, organic shapes make this multi-colored authentic Aborigine-designed fabric from M&S Textiles ideal for quilting, home decor and wearable art.
