Description

Kenny paints the story of the Ntyweyampe (Corkwood) that belongs to his country, Atoola (Bushy Park). This story, its songs, dances and symbols have been passed down to Kenny from his father. Ntyweyampe comes from two Anmatyerre words: ntywey meaning the Corkwood Tree, and ampe a word for honey. The Corkwood tree produces beautiful yellow flowers and distinct corky bark. Honey is obtained from the flowers, either by sucking them or steeping them in water to make a sweet drink. This is also drunk when you are sick. In the hot summer months the honey also trickles out of the flowers and down the tree.

Kenny says 'You eat it, you chew it. It's like treacle running down tree. It is a good medicine for the body for the inside.'
