Yam Seed by Amy Napangardi (SOLD)

30cm x 30cm

Ethically sourced and 100% original

In the Dreamtime there are two parts to the Pencil Yam story that Amy paints. Two different seeds were borne that created two different species of pencil yam; one called Atnwelarr which belongs to Amy's country, and the other called Arlatyeye which belongs to Arnumarra country. 

Eileen paints the seeds of Atnwelarr.

The Atnwelarr itself is a long, skinny tubular yam (swollen root) belonging to a trailing herb or creeper that often covers large areas of ground with bright green leaves and yellow flowers.
