Atnwelarre (Pencil Yam) and Kame (Seed) SP8237-Anna Price Petyarre

Kame, the seed of the Atnwelarr (Pencil Yam), is the subject of Anna's painting. The Dreamtime story for this seed belongs to Anna's country Alhalkere in the Utopia Region, North East of Alice Springs.

In the Dreamtime there are two parts to the Kame story, one that belongs to Alhalkere and Atnangkere countries, and the other that belongs to Arnumarra country. Two different seeds were born that created two different species of Pencil Yam; one called Atnwelarr which belongs to Anna's country, and the other called Arlatyeye which belongs to Arnumarra country. The Kame story is a very important Dreamtime story for Anna's country and ceremonies by her people are performed to ensure its productivity as a food source and life form of the ancestors.

The dot design in this painting is derived from Anna's vision of the kame.
