Though Josepha calls these little berries ‘bush plum’ in English, it also goes by the name Angkwerrpme in Josepha’s language or Mistletoe. There are many different types of angkwerrpme in Central Australia, where all but one or two produce edible berries. Josepha paints one that has sweet edible berries that can be found in shades of yellow, red, orange and purple (or black) in their different stages of maturity. Josepha says they can be found growing on the Witchetty Bush (Acacia kempeana). Dot work symbolises the angkwerrpme and the colours Josepha uses signify these various ripening stages.
