Medicine Leaves - Mirrithin Kungala

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

In my painting the women firstly collect the leaves for medicines then prepare them around the campfires, the different coloured leaves represent the varying seasons and stages of the leaves. When the women get up off the ground the U shape left in the sand is where they were sitting.
