  • "These are Pirlita (bush tomato) You find them in the flat claypan, the flat area. Find them on the side of the road, side of the river down in Conngan or Strelley way. You cut off the top and clean it out. You have to clean it out before you can eat it. [Points to the background of the painting] and these are all the sandhills." - Mary Rowlands Pirlita is the word for bush tomato in Nyangumarta language.
