Anna paints the story of the Atnyerlenge plant. The atnyerlenge (native fuchsia) has beautiful red flowers and is found in Anna's country. In this painting Anna depicts the flowers of this plant and its seeds (dot work).
The atnyerlenge is an important plant in Anna's country because of the sweet honey found in its flowers. The honey is usually sucked straight from the flower.
Anna said, 'We boil the leaves in water and crush. Good bush medicine. Good for itchy, cough, sore and headache. We use boiled water (it's green) for wash.'
