    SignificanceThis work, demonstrative of the strong geometric abstractions typical of contemporary Tiwi art, draws inspiration from the art of body painting that has been practiced by the Tiwi for thousands of years. This patterning, characterised by geometric structures of lines and dots are a significant element in much of the work produced by Tiwi artists.
