The painting depicts particular leaves from plant species, which contain medicinal properties. The Aboriginal women from Utopia in Central Australia gather the leaves. The leaves are boiled, resin is added and mixed into a paste, which is used as bush medicine for many ailments.
The Bush Medicine Dreaming is celebrated by the women from Utopia in their ceremonies.
