Divided by the numerous lines of color that references the tali (sandhills) Anne depicts bora (bush potato) within the yellow circles, mangart (quandong) within the red with cream dotted circles and kumpurt (bush raisins) as the orange ones. All the different foods are set against an array of various bush-tucker seeds that are found throughout the desert.
