Women Collecting Bush Medicine SP7384-Colleen Morton Kngwarreye

Colleen paints women collecting Bush Medicine. There are different types of bush medicine in the Central Desert. In the 'olden days' the leaves and the seeds of this plant were gathered, ground and mixed with animal fat (today a commercial oil is used) and it is then used as an ointment, or boiled in water for medicinal use. Women, represented by the 'U' motifs, are shown cutting and collecting the bush medicine. Dot work represents bush medicine seeds.
