Gabriella Possum Aboriginal dot painting

"Bushtucker" is the Australian term for foods found
in the wilds of the outback. This painting tells the
story of a group of women who are looking
for this food. We are told that: The "U" shapes
represent the women. The white rectangles are
digging sticks. The white dots connected by
black lines are feather belts worn by women
during dances. The circles (or roundels) represent
an important gathering place, such as a water hole,
fire or ceremonial center.
