Janet Golder- Bush Medicine

AUD $2,500.00

Janet Golder- Bush Medicine

Janet comes from a long line of artists with her grandmother the indigenous artist Emily Kame Kngwarreye. Her Bush Medicine painting depicts leaves of a special plant that are used for medical purposes. Women go to different places around her country, Utopia, to collect such leaves. Once selected the leaves are boiled to extract resin and kangaroo fat is mixed through creating a paste that can be stored in the bush for extended periods. The medicine is used to heal cuts, bites, burns, rashes and also acts as an insect repellant.
