Description

In this painting Pauline paints merne atwakeye, known as the bush orange (Capparis mitchellii). Merne means food in Pauline's language and atwakeye is the orange.

Women, represented by the 'U' motifs, are shown collecting Atwakeye. They carry with them their coolamons (carved wooden bowls), which are typical instruments used for collecting many bush foods.
