Image 49 x 25cm; paper 60 x 40cm
This design represents dharpa (tree) that grows in the monsoon vine forests and open forests of NE Arnhem Land. The name for this tree is Gälurra (Mallotus nesophilus). The fruits are eaten when ripe. Munbi (Malaisia scandens) is a climber that also occurs in these forests. The shiny red fruits are collected and may be either eaten raw or cooked. The vine sometimes grows over the Gälurra tree.
