    Anwekety (Conkerberry) by Motorbike Paddy (SOLD)

    30cm x 30cm

    Dots represents anwekety (conkerberries) which are a favoured sweet black berry. They only grow on the plant for a few weeks of the year, however the Ahalpere people would collect plenty of them and store them dry, soaking them in water again before being consumed. Dots are applied with bamboo satay sticks and are layered over one another, conveying a three dimensional aesthetic. Be aware, this painting comes with red dirt stained white paint in some areas - authentically desert art.

    Additionally, there are subtle illustrations of Kadaicha men beneath the dotting.
