Canteen Creek artist Marlene Philomac has painted bush bananas against a background of patterned dotting. The green bananas, round in their youth and pointed as they ripen, emerge against the pastel pink backdrop dotted with blue and white. Depictions of native bush tuckers are popular among the Canteen Creek artists, as they constitute an important method for the preservation of cultural knowledge.
