Atnwelarre (Pencil Yam) and Emu Tucker MB034933-Dolly Mills Petyarre

The seed of the Atnwelarre (Pencil Yam) and Ilenyenp (one of the varieties of cassia found in the Utopia Region) are the subject of Dolly's painting. The stories surrounding both of these plants belong to Alhalkere country in the Utopia Region, northeast of Alice Springs.

The patterns signify travelling, dancing and story lines. Intricate dot work represents the yam seeds and the flowers of the cassia. Dolly explains that emus love to eat the delicate golden yellow flower that blooms on this shrub during the hot summer months.

The designs in this painting represent these stories.
