Acrylic on Canvas – 30 x 30 cm (pre-stretched)
This valuable Marra Bush Medicine plant is called Jinma and is quite rare. Marra people around Borroloola, only know of two or three places where it grows and we travel quite a long way to get it.
Where to find it and how to use it for pain and illness has been passed down to us from our parents and grandparents. Our ancestors have given us a lot of good knowledge about our country and how to survive.
