"Conkerberries" by Brooke Sutton.

This painting is called “Yalpungu” which means “Conkerberry” in the Kalkadoon language.

The fruit on the conkerberry bush is plentiful and has a slight sweet taste like a grape. It can also be stored and dried and eaten like a sultana. The Kalkadoon people would also scrape the roots and soak this in water and drink the mixture for aches and pains. The wood was also burnt as a mosquito repellent. In my painting the different colours represent the different seasons and colours of the flowers and fruit as they ripen.
