The artworks of Esmeralda Burton are very complex and highly decorative designs which are worn by women for ceremonies.  The body painting patterns must conform to the ceremony being performed.

Body painting carries deep spiritual significance for the aboriginal people.  They recognise the creative nature of this activity where the body itself is a living canvas for artistic expression, however the women are not at liberty to design themselves with designs of their own free will.
