Anaty (Desert Yam) by Jeannie Mills Pwerle

210cm x 90cm

Ethically sourced and 100% original

Designs in this painting reflect the Anaty (Desert Yam) Dreaming. The Anaty is the Alyawarr word for desert yam which is similar to a sweet potato and grows in the wild across Central Australia. Growing up to the size of a human head, this yam is an important food source for the Aboriginal people of Central Australia and is still collected and eaten today.

The linear brush work represents the yam and flower, while the dot work in this painting represents its seed.
