Beyula Puntungka Napanangka Kalinykalinypa Tjukurrpa 2015
Acrylic on Belgian linen
1980 x 1220mm

Beyula is telling the story of the Kalinykalinypa or Desert Grevillea flower, a favourite bush food of the Anangu (people) and quite a delicacy. Kalinykalinypa grows in the sandy soils on the plains. The beautiful orange coloured flowers are picked early in the morning and placed in a billycan of water to create 'honeywater' (cordial) or sucked straight off the branch for their sweet honey dew. More often than not the Anangu move from flower to flower bending it to them so they can suck the nectar rather than picking it.
