In this work, Sandy Pitjara Hunter depicts the Bush Tucker Seeds scattered in a mirage of colour all over his country of Utopia. Seen from an aerial perspective, the coloured seeds form beautiful patterns over a large tract of land. Sandy is renowned for his exquisitely fine exection of dot-work using a wide palette to produce a translucent finish.


Well before the arrival of the Europeans, the Aboriginal people made extremely good use of naturally available foods found on the land. Living off the land, meant they had to make use of what was available at any given time of the year, and generally from within their own tribal areas. The seeds are a good source of nutrition for the local people.
