Description

Kenny paints the story of the Yerrampe (Honey Ant) that belongs to his country, Atoola (Bushy Park). This story, its songs, dances and symbols have been passed down to Kenny from his father. The Yerrampe are a sweet bush food for the aboriginal people that live underneath the ground of Mulga trees, making the Yerrampe Dreaming linked to the Mulga Tree Dreaming, both of which are very sacred to Kenny. When collected care is taken not to kill or hurt the Yerrampe (or not get bitten either!) so that they can go on and collect more honey again. The sac on the back of the honey ant is pure natural honey.

A concentric circle in the centre of the painting depicts the hole of the honey ants' nest. Linear work extending from this circle depicts the travelling lines of the honey ants as they crawl back into and out of their hole. Arced linear motifs represent wind breaks that Kenny and the men have set up around the Mulga tree to make collecting the honey ants easier (prickles are prevented from blowing in their direction).
