Yerramp (Honey Ant) Dreaming

Acrylic on canvas  
40 x 65 cm

She paints the Dreaming story of the Yerramp (Honey Ant) that belongs to her countries Ngkwarlerlanem and Arnkawenyerr. Yerramp are a sweet bushfood for the Aboriginal people. When hunting for yerramp care is taken not to hurt or kill them (and not get bitten!) so that they can go on and collect more honey. The sac on the back of they honey ant is pure natural honey. These are sacred and aboriginal people not belonging to this area are not permitted to learn about them.
