Description

Pauline paints women collecting the Atwakeye, known as the bush orange. The small compact tree of the wild orange plant has creamy white flowers that open during the night and wither before the end of the next day. The fruit hang down on long stalks and usually ripen from October through January.

Women, represented by 'U' motifs, can carry with them their digging sticks and coolamons (carved wooden bowls) which are typical instruments used for collecting many bush foods.
