Story

Jeannie paints the Anaty (Desert Yam or Bush Potato, Ipomoea costata) story from her father’s country, Irrwelty in Alyawarr land North East of Alice Springs.

This yam grows underground with its viny shrub growing above up to 1 metre high. It is normally found on spinifex sand plains and produces large pink flowers after summer rain. The anaty is a tuber, or swollen root, of the shrub and tastes much like the common sweet potato. It can be eaten raw or cooked and is still a staple food for the desert aborigines where it can be harvested at any time of the year. Some can be found as big as a person’s head.

In this painting, Jeannie depicts the seed of the anaty (dot work), the anaty and its flower (brush work).
