The meticulous designs in this painting depict elements of Sugarbag. 

Sugarbag is a term used to describe honey collected by native bees who deposit them into sacks on trees. Sometimes these sacks can be quite large, the size of a human head.

For many Aboriginal people in Central Australia, it is a favourite pastime to go and collect sugarbag - a delicious natural treat to bring back to the community.
