Title: Bush Medicine

We are very happy when we look for the medicines. Bush medicines are still collected by our community today. Often the leaves are boiled. The whole family is involved in collecting Bush Tucker and Bush Medicines.

Aboriginal people consume tonics to maintain general health.  They boil roots of some plants for tonics to maintain good health rather than as remedy for an illness.

This painting is about looking for the roots of particular plants so as to use their roots for bush medicine.
