Dulcie Long Pula
91cm x 46cm
The leaf-like patterns used throughout Dulcie’s paintings depict the bush yam flower as it appears above the ground. Her works pay homage to the Bush Yam. During Women’s Ceremony for the Yam, the women sing traditional songs and perform dance to ensure the abundance of the plant over the next year and also the stories associated with the Yam are handed down to the younger generations.
