Acrylic on linen 1525 x 1015mm SOLD
Ruby is telling the story of the Ultukunpa or Honey Grevillea flower which is a favourite bush food of the Anangu
(people) Pitjantjatjara. Ultukunpa grows in the sandy soils of the plains. The flower can be picked and placed in a
billycan of water to create ‘honeywater’ (cordial) or they can be sucked for their sweet honey dew. The white
circles are kapi tukula or rock holes where water collects.
