This painting by Louise Numina is her dreaming about the bush medicine leaves. She has painted this very nicely with blue leaves scattered across a black background.
Aboriginal women go into the bush looking for special bushes to collect their leaves. The leaves change colour according to age and season. Depending on the colour of the leaves when picked are its uses. These are used for many medicinal purposes such as nausea, headaches, colds and flu, insect bites and infections.
