A very nice piece from Janelle.

It clearly shows the women’s campsites, where they have digging sticks and coolamons at hand. The background dotting represents her country, and it is very neatly and finely executed. The women have their children with them, and one has been handed a witchetty grub to eat. The cross formation carrying the witchetty grubs represent the roots that the witchetty grubs are found in.
