Bush Food Ecru by Cindy Wallace
Australian Aboriginal people are hunters and gatherers. They collect a Major part of their food from the bush. They get fruits and other vegetables from the bush like bush banana, potatoes, sweet potatoes, bush tomato, plums, cherries, etc. They also collect mulga seeds to make tasty bread. Aboriginal people get their protein from Kangaroo, Wallaby, Lizard, Snakes, etc. However, Aboriginal people will always collect the right amount of food just for their needs. They do not spoil nature to hoard staple food. Likewise, they also do not kill animals’ insects etc. more than they requirement.
Cindy Wallace comes from a well-known artistic background. Cindy herself is a very good artist. We have printed a number of her excellent works in the past. Many of our customers will remember her name well. In her present artwork, Cindy depicted bush foods vividly such as Bush Sultana, Bush Tomato, and Cherries etc. Her skilled depiction of Waterholes, Running Water, Walking Path and Women with Digging Sticks looks colourful, vibrant and close to the collector’s heart.
