Bush Medicine - Munangu Mirrithin

My name is Brooke Sutton and I am a contemporary Indigenous artist from the Kalkadoon people from the Mount Isa area in Queensland. This is my interpretation of “Munangu Mirrithin” which means in the Kalkadoon language “Bush Medicine”.

Kalkadoon people had an extensive knowledge of gathering bush foods and medicines and would use them to heal many ailments and would teach and nurture the next generation passing on this vital information.

They would collect plums and bark from the wild plum bush using the plums as food and the bark to treat skin ailments, they would collect wild lemongrass and boil it to make a lemon tea for sore throats and they would collect an assortment of leaves and flowers, nuts, berries and seeds and prepare them for medicines.

Includes Free postage with the painting stretched onto the frame and ready to hang on your wall.
