Sian Harris “Munta” (Sacred)

Artist statement
Munta (meaning sacred in Paakantyi) is a series of artworks that depict imagery of womanhood from the view of an Aboriginal woman and artist Sian Harris. The works emulates and challenges the ethnographically collected imagery of womanhood and femininity. Munta gives meaning to the images that would have been misrepresented as obscene or distasteful.
