Bunha-Bunhanga (An Abundance Of Food)
This artwork represents the bush tucker used by Aboriginal peoples. It represents the way in which the country provides for the people and the animals that live there, and the way in which the people take only what they need, to ensure there is always an abundance of food. It was the role of the woman to forage for berries, fruits, and native herbs. They would collect these items carefully, teaching the young as they went which foods were able to be collected and which were better left alone. There are representations within this artwork of lemon myrtle, wattle seeds, Kakadu plum, desert quandong, wattles and river red gum.
