Pencil Yam by Bessie Petyarre

30cm x 30cm

Atnwelarr, the pencil yam, and Kame, the seed of this plant, are the subject of Bessie’s painting. Specifically, dot work in this painting symbolises the seed.

In the Dreamtime, there are two parts to the pencil 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.
