Title: Bush Medicines
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 Medicines. This painting is about the plum tree root. It is boiled up and this is drunk like a tea. When it is boiling it changes colour to an orange, and this painting is about the changes that it goes through. This medicine is for the kidneys.
