Margaret Loy Pula

“This painting is about my culture. That’s my father’s dreaming. This is from my father’s country, that country is called “Unjangola”. That is north of Utopia, not too far but really desert country”.

The bush potato vine grows after the rains. The women go out to collect the potato using crowbars to dig up the ground. The potatoes can grow quite large, depending on the amount of rain. Once collected they are cooked in the hot coals of the fire. They are an important source of bush food for the Anmatyerre people.
