Marlam

“Marlam that one, finger painting. When we paint our bodies, that’s the one, our body painting. I made that, it’s my story. When we have corroboree, that’s the body painting. I wanted to try it and it’s a good one, he’s all right.”

Peggy Patrick is a respected Warmun elder. She has painted this work in the same style that she paints the body with her fingers (marlam) during corroboree and ceremony.
