Yam Flower by Tenallie Mills (SOLD)

A4

Ethically sourced and 100% original

Designs in this painting depict the flower of the anaty (desert yam) and dots represent the yam seeds. 

Desert yams are tubers or swollen roots of the Ipomoea costata, a fast-growing creeper with large purplish-pink trumpet flowers. They are still a staple food for Aboriginal people in Utopia and can be harvested any time of year, preferably after a big rain.

Small, white U shaped symbols represent women who are collecting the yams, accompanied by digging sticks.
