"This is tucker for emu. Kangaroos eat this too. The small purple flowers are bush medicine. The white ground is the dry swamp."
Epenarra artist Susie Peterson has painted a sprawling, green-and-yellow plant sprouting bush tucker that local animals eat. The plant is surrounded by bush flowers that have medicinal values. Depictions of bush tucker and bush medicine are common among the Epenarra artists and are used as a tool to record and relay important cultural information.
