This wildly expressive vision of the patterning made by the Yarla (bush potato) above and beneath the earth showing the interlinking tubers under the ground as well as the seeds above. A very important food source for many aboriginal people as it grows in great abundance during the wet and around waterholes and carries on into the dry, rich in proteins and starches this great tuber is dug up by the women and taken back to the camp to be rolled around on the hot ashes of a fire, then shared by all. This food source is still pursued today by lorna and her country women, to help suppliment there diet in the harsh tanami desert conditions were larjamanu settlement is. A great ceremony is also held in honor of this plant to celebrate its life giving importance. Beneath the luxuriously textured work is an underlying design of women’s body paint design for the bush potato in the area of the artist’s birthplace. Comes with 11 working photos.
