Designer: A. Napanangka
Manufacturer: M&S Textiles of Australia
Traditionally Aboriginal people are hunters and gathers. They are very good understanding about plants, animals and natural resources. They maintained unhindered relationship with land. Australian Aboriginal people never spoiled the land by collecting bush tucker for hoarding i.e. collecting more than their needs.
Audrey Martin Napanangka is a very good artist. She belongs to Yuendumu group of artists. She beautifully depicted the bush coconut plants in a decorative manner. The best time to look for bush onion around April/May to pickup. Audrey Martin Napanangka was born in Yuendumu where bush coconuts grow abundantly.
