Emily has spent most of her life at this place and knows it intimately in good season - and in bad. It is essentially the power of the red, bare soil with its countless seeds of energy hidden lying in wait for rain, that when recognised, binds one forever to the country with the marvel of such dramatic transformation and the abundance that follows.
To witness a display of the desert's power, gives a basis to understanding the reverence and enthusiastic anticipation of the women's ceremonial activities, called 'awelye'. They celebrate the hardiness and fertility of their bush tucker food resources, and in turn, their own.
Emily displays her country in bold and brazen storms of colour, the colours representing the raw, ripe and dry fruit - the bud, the stalk, the scattered seeds - all parts of the life cycle."
