Description: Janet’s striking and unique three dimensional painting depicts Aboriginal women with their digging sticks collecting the honey in the sugar bags which is a nutritious bush tucker food for central desert aboriginals. The red circles are the holes in which the bees set up their hives. The native black bee stores its honey bag under rock ledges and the women collect the honey during the cool sunset hours. The colours depict this time of day. An excellent example of Janet's best works at a Great Sale Price
