Bush Food

As told by the artist:

‘This is about hunting for bush food. The women go to bush and look for yams. They look for the leaf and follow it down to the bottom of the tree. With the digging stick they dig for the yam. The women also collect bush food, different berries in different seasons. They take the food back to camp in their dilly bags. They cook the yams on the fire and sometimes use termite nests to add extra heat to the ground oven. The women return to the shade, the children and dogs are there too. All the food is shared.’
