Bush Melon by Minnie Pwerle

30cm x 15cm

Ethically sourced and 100% original

The small circular designs in this painting represent anemangkerr, a small globular fruit similar to ‘a little melon’. This fruit is high in Vitamin C, and is favoured for its exceptional keeping qualities. The ancestral Dreamtime stories associated with the anemangkerr belong to Atnwengerrp Country. This ancient red country lies in the heartland of Alyawarr land, northeast of Alice Springs, in Central Australia.
