Honey from Jiga of the Trees 2008

Acrylic on canvas
80 x 100 cm

“Before the Wet Season Jiga (flowers) are found on the Mardiwa (Wild Plum Gum) tree. Very small native bees collect the pollen, go back to bee hives and make honey. Lagarndi (witchetty grubs) are found on this tree also. When we see the gum flowering, we know the Mawili (female crocodiles) are laying eggs. All this bush tucker are ready at the same time”
