Lanita’s ‘My Country’ paintings encompass all of the individual stories mentioned above. This story illustrates traditional meeting places in which the women in her family gather to perform ceremony; the locations of where women would collect ochre to paint up their bodies in ceremonial designs; and discuss ‘women’s business’. Women’s Business would never be performed in the presence of men, and is a sacred time of coming together and connecting. She uses iconography to map out landmark formations, and to describe the landscape around the Utopia region. This is important landscape knowledge to be passed down to the next generation.
