1219 x 1219mm

Akajiri is a popular bush food of the Solanum family sometimes called desert raisin or bush tomato. This painting depicts women collecting Akajiri in Alison's country, near Papunya, Central Desert Australia. It is also where the women perform their ceremony in which they paint their breast, chest and forearms and decorate their bodies with feathers.
