Pencil Yam Seed by Eileen Bird

30cm x 30cm

100% original and ethically sourced

In the Dreamtime there are two parts to the Pencil Yam story that Eileen paints. Two different seeds were borne that created two different species of pencil yam; one called Atnwelarr which belongs to Alhalkere and Atnangkere countries, and the other called Arlatyeye which belongs to Eileen’s country. 

Eileen paints the seeds of Arlatyeye.

The Arlatyeye itself is a small, long tubular yam (swollen root) belonging to a trailing herb or creeper that often covers large areas of ground with bright green leaves and yellow flowers.
