Anwekety, the bush plum, is a Dreaming story given to Gladdy by her Grandmother. From above, the seasonal colours of the anwekety dominate Ahalpere country. Gladdy’s shimmering, sweeping expanses of dots create a rich and vertiginous image of desert terrain. The joyful rhythms reflect Gladdy’s pride in passing down the story, just as her grandmother did.
