Elizabeth Loy Kngwarreye


Pencil Yam Flower by Elizabeth Loy (SOLD)

In this painting Elizabeth captures the untamed movement of the leaves and yellow flowers of a native trailing herb as it emerges from the ground after significant rain and sweeps across the desert floor, bringing the bush to life.

This herb produces small tubers or pencil yams that grow beneath the surface. These are still harvested by Elizabeth and her people today.
