Kakárra (bush flowers)

This design features lost of flowers and bush food from around the coastal areas of Entrance Island and Maningrida.

‘There are the leaves of the black plum – we call that karranganjónganja vita glabrata. There are also jungle flowers that we find when we are looking for yam, I don’t know what they call them but that’s the curly one. The small one in the middle is the flowers of the warakkála (flowers of the long yam). These flowers grow all over this region, you can find them when you walk around the bush. Marilyn James
