The artist depicts leaves of a bush medicine plant, which like other bush foods is significantly represented in women's ceremonies.  Collecting Bush Foods is an important part of the women's role in traditional Aboriginal culture. The ceremonies pay homage to bush foods to ensure an abundance of food for the next season.

Margaret is from the Utopia region in the Northern Territory; born circa 1951
