Description

All of Lily's Dreamtime stories belong to her countries Ngkwarlerlaneme and Arnkawenyerr. This painting is inspired by the Dreamtime story of the Ilyarn or Ilyarnayt (Acacia validinervia), a rare and attractive plant growing throughout Central Australia.

Bundles of golden yellow globular flowers bloom on this plant, nestled in between thick, leathery leaves. This plant is particularly favourable for the abundance of edible grubs living in the roots, known simply as Ilyarnayt.
