DescriptionPlum Seeds Red by Kathleen Pitjara. Kathleen Pitjara comes from Utopia, Northern Territory, approximately 270 km northeast of Alice Spring. A fabulous artist, her dreaming is Bush Plum Seed. Once, in the Dreamtime, winds blew from all directions to Utopia, carrying Bush Plum seeds of the ancestral land. The first Bush Plum seeds of the dreaming grew and bore fruits and eventually dropped more seeds. To ensure the continued fruiting of this plant in each season, the Aboriginal people pay homage to the spirit of the bush plum and by painting plum seeds as well as by singing, dancing and storytelling in ceremonies. Aboriginal people also make very tasty bread dough from the paste of Plum Seeds. The wonderful hues and dynamic, organic shapes make this multi-colored authentic Aborigine-designed fabric from M&S Textiles ideal for quilting, home decor and wearable art.
