Dreaming: This painting depicts the ancient process of making Wanganu, Bush Bread. Bush Bread or seedcake is made by grinding native seeds, often with the addition of other edible native foods such as nuts and roots, into a dough. The dough is then cooked in the red coals of an open fire. Called Damper by the Europeans, it is still made by Aboriginal women today as a traditional food.
Contemporary aboriginal painting.
Medium: Acrylic on canvas, stretch framed.
