Bush Yam Seed Dreaming
- Anna Price Petyarre
Medium: Acrylic on Belgian Linen
This painting depicts the seed ( looping pattern) of the Bush yam plant. This was once an important food source for the Anmatyerre people of Utopia in Central Australia. The Yam plant is a significant totem and certain people who own this Dreaming celebrated it in their Awelye ceremonies.
