Description: An excellent example of Janet's best works depicting the different kinds of bush tucker found in the area. In the centre of the painting the white designs within the circle depict the witchetty grubs, the larval stage of a moth, considered a delicacy food by Central Desert Aborigines. Surrounding them is the root system of the witchetty tree (Acacia Kempeana) where the grubs are found. The outer edges of the painting illustrate the bush banana plant with its radiating vines called Langua. The different colours of the fruit show the different stages of new growth with changing seasons. The Bush Banana is an edible bush fruit.
