Corkwood Honey by Doreen Kunoth

30cm x 30cm

Shop current artworks by Doreen Kunoth Petyarre

Designs in this painting are inspired by the honey collected from the Corkwood tree called Ntyweyampe.

Ntyweyampecomes from two Anmatyerre words: ntywey meaning the Corkwood tree, and ampe a word for honey. 

The Corkwood tree produces beautiful yellow flowers and distinct corky bark. Honey is obtained from the flowers, either by sucking them or steeping them in water to make a sweet drink. This is also drunk when you are sick.

In the hot summer months the honey also trickles out of the flowers and down the tree. 

'You eat it, you chew it.  It’s like treacle running down tree.  It is a good medicine for the body for the inside.’ - Kenny Tilmouth
