Priced and sold per 1/2 yard. Women's Body Painting Gold by Cindy Wallace, 100% cotton, 44/45 inches wide. Cindy Wallace explores the relationship of Body Painting to ancient ancestral ceremonies/gatherings, where women paint with various paints and perform ritual offerings to their ancestors. These rituals have strict rules, and the paint must be of their community resembling their ancestors. They are only allowed to paint certain respected traditional patterns. After the paint, the women are considered as the spirit of their ancestors. The wonderful hues and dynamic, organic shapes make this multi-colored Aboriginal designed fabric ideal for quilting, home decor and wearable art. M&S Textiles Australia was established to promote Aboriginal designs to the quilting community. The company pays each Aborigine artist a fair market wage and licenses these original indigenous art designs, guaranteeing authenticity.
