Description

Bronwyn paints the story of the Antyarlkenh (Ipomoea polpha). This plant has large soft leaves that trail along the ground for up to four metres from its centre, and soft purple flowers that bloom in spring if conditions are favourable. Underneath the ground, tubers (yams) grow large and round, averaging about 1 kg. This particular yam, similar to Anaty (Ipomoea costata) is now very rare to find, although evidence of it in aboriginal culture from different areas suggests that it occurred more in the past. Though scarce, it is known by its reputation as it is considered to be the best of all the native tubers. Once this plant is found, tubers can be located by hitting the ground with a digging stick until a hollow sound is heard, sometimes being found 2.5 metre from the base of the plant.
