Description

In this painting, Nikita paints the Bush Medicine Plant. There are different types of bush medicine in the Central Desert. In the 'olden days' the leaves and the seeds of this plant were gathered, ground and mixed with animal fat (today a commercial oil is used) and it is then used as an ointment, or boiled in water for medicinal use. In this painting, dot work represents the bush medicine seeds. The oval shaped designs represent coolamons (full of bush medicine leaves and seeds) which are typical instruments used for collecting many bush foods.
