Title: Bush medicines – Alyawarra

This painting is about the bush medicines we collect for our family. We still do this today for us. The blue flowers are of the lump(b)alumpb) bush which grows everywhere after rain. We dig for it like yams and smash them up and boil. It is like a shampoo for hair and makes our hair lovely and long. The yellow one is called Iterra which we smash up and boil and mix in hot fat for cold and skin. The green one is good for scabies and stops us itching. It is called Arretherr. It is smashed and boiled and mixed in hot fat . We are very happy when we look for the medicines.
