MEET ANNETTE NUNGALA

Bush Medicine Design
"This painting shows bush medicine after summer rain, and all the little dots represent stones and seeds. When rain time comes flowers grow again."
Bush Medicine is a subject Annette Nungala Peterson returns to repeatedly in her painting, knowledge of bush medicine is taken very seriously in Indigenous culture and is often held by women. The science of bush medicine involves relationships with the Country, family, and a healthy way of life inherited by ancestors.
