Story from the certificate of authenticity:
Body paint women wear for ceremony, Coniston Way, woman and children wear for ceremony, open ceremony. They put these marks on their shoulders for Inma (dance). Stories come from my Country, old Coniston camp, west of Coniston Station, like Witchetty Grub Dreaming.
Women paint each other up, and then dance together. Everybody happy. It's hot, summer time. Close to Coniston. I was born on that Country. Old Coniston Camp, but old people are all finished up now ,so no-one lives there, no outstation, nothing. Everyone lives at Yuelamu (MT Allan Community.) My mother, my father, all finished now.
