An band of yellow ochre in a pit at the Granites

An band of yellow ochre in a pit at the Granites. Aboriginal people used ochre for ceremonial body painting and rituals and to paint artifacts and message diagrams, using different coloured pigments: some ochre is heated up, colour varying with temperature. Once prepared, the ochre was mixed with a binder such as garliwun (tree resin), bush honey, egg yolks or kangaroo blood. The artist was then ready to begin painting.
