/ Bush Medicine Dreaming

/ Cat.No: GL214

'Bush Medicine Dreaming' or 'Leaves' Is the story of this painting. It is one of the most popular and most frequently painted images in the history of Australian Aboriginal Art. Those paintings depict a rhythmic image of bush medicine leaves that have fallen to the ground in season and formed swirling patterns. The leaf is from a desert Fuschia that grew in Gloria's country and for many generations her clan has relied on this shrub to form the basis of a bush medicine that is effective for kidney problems.
