Description: A beautifully executed bush banana design with great movement and soul depicting the bush banana plant in the area of the artist’s birthplace. The Central Desert Australian Aboriginal people consider the Bush Banana plants, called the “Langua” to be of great importance because of their nutritional value and healing properties. They are eaten as a fruit and also parts of the vine are used for medicinal purposes. Central Desert Aborigines consider them a delicacy food. Bush Banana plants grow in rock crevices, close to water holes, or dry riverbeds in Spinifex country. A Great Sale Price
