Marie says; “Women go hunting you know. To pick up, to collect bush mangarri and bush medicine.”
This painting represents the bush foods; kumpupatja (bush tomato), karnti (bush sweet potato), tjirrilpatja (bush carrots) and ngarlukutu (bush coconut).
The painting also tells the story of women collecting bush medicine.
