Marie paints women collecting angkwerrpme. Angkwerrpme is the name for Mistletoe in Marie’s language. There are many different types of angkwerrpme in Central Australia, where all but one or two produce edible berries. In this painting Marie paints one that has sweet edible berries that the women collect for the community. Marie has also illustrated the women, represented by the footprints, collecting the angkwerrpme. Marie likes to use traditional ochre colours in the background design to reflect the rich sand hill country of Central Australia.
