Marie says; “Women go hunting you know. To pick up, to collect bush mangarri and bush medicine.” This painting represents the bush foods; kumpupatja (bush tomato), karnti (bush sweet potato), tjirrilpatja (bush carrots) and ngarlukutu (bush coconut). The painting also tells the story of women collecting bush medicine. Wumpart- “We boil it, good for boil and scabies, for skin.” Kukakuwurrkal- “Lemongrass, have it as a tea. We drink it every morning for kidney.” Ngurnu Ngurnu- “Bush vicks, we make vicks for cold sick.” Yuwayi thats all.
