Women's Ceremonies at Marrapinti by Dorreen Reid
Temporarily out of stock
Doreen Reid’s painting, ‘Women’s ceremonies at Marrapinti’ depicts designs associated with the rockhole site of Marrapinti, west of the Pollock Hills in Western Australia. During ancestral times, a group of women of the Nangala and Napangati kinship subsections camped at Marrapinti on their travels towards the east. While here, the women made nose bones, also known as marrapinti, which are worn through a hole in the septum. During the ceremonies relating to Marrapinti, the older women pierced the nasal septums of the young female participants. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the women continued their travels east, passing through Wala Wala, Ngaminya and Wirrulnga, before heading north-east to Wilkinkarra (Lake Mckay). The lines in this painting depict the rippling tali (sandhills) surrounding Marrapinti.
Renowned for her fastidious geometric linework and complex optical fields, Doreen was a truly formidable artist. Painted in the year of her death, ‘Women’s ceremonies at Marrapinti’ is an example of the artist working at the peak of her craft.
