Wild Banana

This is a painting of the wild banana that grows around Ngukurr. Gwenneth says: ‘Eat it straight off the tree or put it in the fire to make it soft and sweet. We eat all of it, with the skin, it is dark green. The ones that curl around, the curly one is a vine. Good medicine for clear skin. Chew on the vine for water even if there is no fruit on it.’
