Bush Medicine Leaves Mousepad

Featuring Artwork by Gloria Petyarre

Aboriginal people use various plants for medicinal purposes.  This painting depicts the Kurrajong leaves blowing in the wind - used as a tea remedy for colds and flu, and when ground with animal fat, as a poultice for wounds and ulcers.
