TIWI CEREMONIAL FEMALE FIGURE BY MICKEY GERANIUM WARLAPINNI
Artist: Mickey Geranium Warlapinni Period/Date: Early 1960s
Materials: Harwood, natural pigments
Description: This rare female sculpture is one of the earlier works by Waralapinni "Mickey Geranium". She has raised breasts with arms at the sides with head turned to the right. The face has a distinctly pointed chin with open mouth having an overall serene countenance. It retains much of its original paint. There is a natural separation along the torso which I think serves to punctuate the compartmentalized dot motif (If desired this area can be filled and blended by a restorer for a fee).
Dimensions: Height: 29.5" (77.5 cm), Width 4.25" (11 cm)
