Size/Medium : 900 x 600mm: acrylic on canvas Painting
This painting depicts Karnti (bush potato). It is an important food for Katie who still goes hunting for it in the dry season with her family. It can be found all around the Mulan area, near Paruku (Lake Gregory). Katie’s mother showed her how to find Karnti by looking for vines and cracks in the ground and digging them up with a digging stick.
