The bush yam plant (‘Anaty’) is one of the most reliable sources of food found in Freda’s country. The yam is most abundant after the rain when the root system is at its most prolific stage of regeneration. The bush yam grows underground with a viny shrub that grows above ground up to one metre high, and is normally found on spinifex sand plains and produces a large pink or yellow flower after the summer rain.

The Bush Yam is represented by the coloured line patterns, while the dot work represents the seeds of the Yam. The circular patterns represent the flower of the Bush Yam when it is in bloom.
