Anaty (Desert Yam)

Shikera (previously spelt Shakira) began painting in September 2006. Her first paintings for Mbantua Gallery were canvas and paint she had borrowed from her mother, Lisa Mills Pwerle (deceased).

One of our youngest artists, Shikera's face proudly sports a huge smile when she finishes a new painting. We hope she has a great future and continues to learn the traditions of her culture through painting.

Shikera paints the same subject as her mother, the Anaty (desert yam). There is an ancient Dreamtime story belonging to the Anaty which Shikera will continue to be taught as she gets older. This story belongs to her mother's country, Irrweltye. Her designs are very similar to her mother's, who was her teacher, where linear work represents the root system of the yam and dots are its seeds.

Description

Shikera paints the Anaty story from her father's country. This yam grows underground with its viny shrub growing above ground up to 1 metre high. The anaty is a tuber, or swollen root, of the shrub and tastes much like the common sweet potato. It can be eaten raw or cooked and is still a staple food for the desert aborigines where it can be harvested at any time of the year. Some can be found as big as a person's head.
