Through her precise dot work Margaret depicts the story of the bush potato vine,Anatye. Growing after the rains, the women go out to collect the bush potato using crowbars to dig up the ground. Once collected they are cooked in the hot coals of the fire. They are an important source of bush food for the Anmatyerre people.
