This Limited Edition Etching depicts a major women’s ceremonial site known as Mina Mina. Topographically, the sacred site of Mina Mina is made up of two enormous soakage areas that, rarely filled with water, exist as clay-pans. As water soaks into the ground small areas of earth dry out and lift at the edges, becoming delineated by salt. In this striking diptych design of white and black dotting, Dorothy depicts the crustations of salt stretching infinitely onward, etched with the tracks of the women as their paths stretch on, crossing and merging; telling their stories.

The site depicted in this painting is Puyurru, west of Yuendumu. In the usually dry creek beds are water soakages. Two Jangala men, rainmakers, sang the rain, unleashing a giant storm. It travelled across the country, lightning striking the land. This storm met another storm from Wapurtali, to the west, was picked up by a ‘kirrkarlan’ and carried further west until it dropped the storm at Purlungyanu, where it created a giant soakage. At Puyurru the bird dug up a giant snake, ‘warnayarra’ and the snake carried water to create the large lake, Jillyiumpa, close to an outstation in this country.

In this lyrical Body Painting artwork, Abie creates “Awelye”, the ceremonial designs that custodial women use in “women’s business”. These women dreamtime stories are passed down through the female line during which the women paint their bodies in ochres, singing and dancing. Building on the curvature of the woman’s form Abie creates a scalloped effect with her repetition of the motif as it ripples across the surface of the canvas. The monochromatic use of paint builds a sensual depth into this work that alludes to “women’s business” which we as outsiders are not privy to.

The painting is estimated to be about 15,000 years.
