This painting is about Kapi and bush tucker. The long lines that move through the painting indicate Kapi [water] travelling into swampy areas [the circles]. Here you find yalke [bush onion]. Here you also find birds' eggs [the white dots in the central circle].There are also Mangata [Native Quandong fruit]. Yalke is a tiny sweet little onion that you can eat raw or cooked. This vegetable grows in soft sand, near creeks, waterholes and salty swamps. Your grandparents tell you where they are. You can eat them raw or cook them up in the coals’. Yalke is important food during drought, and has strong Tjukurrpa associations that span cultural and linguistic groups. Quandong are another important bush food much loved across Central Australia. Swamps are important because they offer a haven to nesting birds, the eggs of which people can gather.
