Anemangkerr (Bush Melon) Dreaming MB020665-Minnie Pwerle

Minnie's painting illustrates the Anemangkerr, a small globular fruit that she describes as being 'a little melon'. This fruit is high in Vitamin C and is favoured for its exceptional keeping qualities. Excess fruit is often threaded onto sticks, after removing the inedible black seeds. The fruit can then be dried and stored for a considerable period of time.

Minnie enjoys using many vivid colours in her paintings, however the traditional colours used during ceremony for her dreamtime stories are red and white. Her stories belong to her country, Atnwengerrp. Atnwengerrp lies in the heartland of Alyawarr country, approximately 200 kilometres to the northeast of Alice Springs, in Central Australia.
