Yam Dreaming by Greeny Purvis Petyarre

120cm x 45cm

Ethically sourced and 100% original

Atnwelarr, the pencil yam, and Kame, its seed, are the subject of this painting.

In the Dreamtime, there are two parts to this yam story. Two different seeds were born that created two different species of yam; one called Atnwelarr which belongs to Alhalkere and Atnangkere countries, and the other called Arlatyeye which belongs to Arnumarra country.

Dots in this painting symbolise the seed while repetitious lines represent the root system (the yams) beneath the ground.
