Bush Medicine Plants by Betty Pula Morton.

This T-shirt is a design from the Artists of Ampilatwatja Art Centre and is part of the Nganana / Koskela: Art Centre T-shirt Collab

Artist Statement:
“Bush medicine plants are used for healing on the body and for drinking. We make this by smashing the plants with a rock, we use the juice and the fibre of the plant. We collect bush medicine plants when we are out hunting. Different kinds of plants grow during different seasons. There are lots of different medicines, we know what their stories are as we learnt them from our parents and we teach these stories to our children.” - Betty Pula Morton.

Betty has been painting with Artists of Ampilatwatja since 2013. She draws her inspiration from the country that she goes hunting in or looking for bush yams and bush bananas, “sometimes I just like to go out there to see country”.

The Artists of Ampilatwatja community was established in 1999 near Alice Springs in the Northern Territory. The community of Ampilatwatja made a conscious decision not to paint ‘altyerr’ dreaming stories. The artists paint their country where those stories sit.

Digitally printed on a 140GSM Certified 100% organic cotton, this raw tee features a relaxed crew neck, long body, raw sleeves and hem. The white tee is a men’s size large, but is a flattering oversized cut for women also.
