Women Collecting Imuna (Bush Food) SP7108-Carmen Jones Petyarre

In this painting Carmen depicts women collecting a variety of bush foods, including Irreyakwerree (Wild Onion), akarley (wild orange), akatyerre (bush tomato, desert raisin or wild sultana), alkwarrer (bush banana) and bush berries.

Women are shown collecting the fruits by the 'U' motifs. They carry with them their digging sticks and coolamons (carved wooden bowls) which are typical instruments used for collecting many bush foods. The concentric circles represent the site/s where the bush foods are being collected. Carmen likes to use traditional dot work in the background design to reflect the rich sand hill country of her country, Arawerre.
