Description

Gary paints the story of the Tyankern. This is a very important story for Gary that belongs to his country, Ilkawerne. This story, its songs, dances and symbols have been passed down to Gary from his father. The Tyankern is a sweet edible berry that belongs to a type of mistletoe (Lysiana spp.) found growing on the mulga tree. In the Dreamtime these two plants are one.
