Description

All of Janice's Dreamtime stories belong to her countries Ngkwarlerlaneme and Arnkawenyerr. This painting is inspired by the Dreamtime story of the Ilyarn or Ilyarnayt, a common variety of acacia.

This plant is particularly favoured for the abundance of edible grubs living in the roots, known simply as Ilyarnayt (or witchetty) and also its seeds (ntang ilyarnayt) which are collected, ground into a paste and used for making damper (bread).
