Atnwelarr, the pencil yam, and Kame, the seed of this plant, are the subject of Joy’s painting.  The Dreamtime stories for both of these belong to Joy’s country Alhalkere in the Utopia region. 

The Atnwelarr is a trailing herb or creeper, sometimes covering large areas, with bright green leaves, yellow flowers and long skinny yams (swollen roots).  These are an important food source which can be eaten raw or cooked in hot sand and ashes. Read more >
