About the Artwork

This artwork depicts the Bush Plum (or Conkerberry).  The varying composition in color and pattern reveals the geography of the Bush plum, as well as the artist’s knowledge of significant places, such as clay pans, soakages and spinifex mounds. Bush Plum is a food source for the Aboriginal people from Utopia in the Eastern desert of Central Australia. The women pay homage through body paint, songlines, and dance cycles in their ceremonies.
