Description

Pauline paints merne atwakeye, known as the bush orange (Capparis mitchellii). Merne means food in Pauline's language and atwakeye is the orange. The small compact tree of the wild orange plant is about 3½ m high with dark green leathery leaves. Its creamy white flowers open during the night and wither before the end of the next day. The fruit hang down on long stalks, turning a yellow green tint when ripe. The oranges usually ripen from October through January depending on seasonal conditions.

Pauline illustrates the fruit and flower of the bush orange plant. Background dot work represents the seeds of the bush orange. Women, represented by 'U' shaped symbols, collect the bush orange with their digging sticks and coolamons (wooden bowls) which are typical instruments used for collecting many bush foods. Linear patterns denote the Awelye (women's ceremonial body paint designs) relating to this story.
