Bush Medicine by Patsy Long Kemarre

30cm x 30cm

Ethically sourced and 100% original

There are many sacred Dreamtime stories that belong to Patsy’s country, Antarrengeny of which play a significant part in her ceremonies and culture.  One of her main Dreamings is the story of Bush Medicine. There are different types of bush medicine in the Central Desert. One is used as an ointment where the star shaped leaves, along with the seeds of the plant are crushed, mixed with animal fats and applied topically on sores. Another has medicinal properties in its roots that can be dug up and drunk straight from the root to cure sore throats.

Subtle ovular shapes in this painting form a star like pattern which represents the bush medicine leaves, and lines stemming diagonally from it represents the roots beneath the ground. Dot work represents the seeds.
