‘Bush Medicine Healing’

61 x 76 cm

Acrylic on stretched canvas ready to hang.

Traditional bush medicine healing is a way of life and is still used and practiced by many First Nations women. Traditional healing is not only physical healing using plant medicines, but emotional and spiritual healing. The various patterns and symbols scattered across the work symbolise women on Country collecting berries, medicine leaves and seeds for healing. The warm natural colours represent the ochre and colours of the land. Healing on Country and ancient remedies have been handed down by women through the generations for more than 50,000 years. The Country is our mother, and gives us our identity, a sense of belonging and a guide for reciprocal wellness. The land holds healing and we come from the land.
