The plum is a staple bush food source gathered by Aboriginal women. In traditional times, the bush plum plant was also used for the treatment of various ailments through the use of the tree’s bark. The inside of the bark was used to treat infections and wounds. The fruit itself was cultivated to assist in long treks or hunting trips. The plums were either dried or eaten fresh.

To represent the Bush Plum, Polly uses a heavily loaded paintbrush to work the many layers of colourful dots onto the linen. Through blending, the dots create the effect of the flowering plants, the scattered seeds of the fruit, and the landscape after the heavy rain season.
