Description

Rosie paints Soakage and Bush Medicine Plant. Rosie uses circular designs to represent Soakages that are located throughout her country, Ahalpere. Many of these soakages had plenty of water in them long ago although most have dried up now. With their intimate knowledge of the land, Rosie's people knew how and where to find them in their harsh desert environment.

The leaf of the Bush Medicine Plant is gathered and taken back to the camp, ground and mixed with animal oils and then rubbed onto open wounds.
