Dreamtime: The Aboriginal people of Australia are the earliest surveying culture in the history of mankind. They created and manage a sustainable culture of their society and culture. They have inhabited Australia for no less than 60,000 years they used to have significant contact with trade people of other places. Dreamtime is the Aboriginal understanding of the world, its creation and its great creation stories. Cindy Wallace comes from the well-known Wallace family. She was born in 1973 in Santa Teresa, a place about 80km from Alice Springs. Cindy’s work on women body Dreaming is an excellent piece of work. ‘Awelye’ in a word that describes everything to do with a women’s ceremony which includes body painting. Awelye ceremonies women are happy to decorate their bodies with dots, lines, circular segments and other types.
