Lorraine has depicted wild bush onions growing which along with other bush foods are significantly represented in women’s ceremonies.  The ceremonies pay homage to bush foods to ensure the abundance of food for the coming season. The collection of seeds, flowers, and bulbs in coolamons (carrying bowls) is an important part of the woman’s role in traditional Aboriginal culture.
