Description

The designs in this painting are inspired by the Alhepalh, a sparsely branched shrub that is found abundantly near Janice's home in the Utopia region in Central Australia. Alhepalh produces small soft coated brown seeds that the women would once collect, grind into a paste and cook into damper (bread) making it a most important food source. This practice however is not habitual now due to ready made bread.
