Sugar Bag Story

Works on Paper


Highly commended

Acrylic on paper, 91cm x 110cm 

Sugar bag is one of Josie's favorite bush foods and at most times she has some in her house. It refers to different types of bush honey. It is a rare treat in the bush & highly sought after by aboriginal people.
Most of it is collected from hollow logs in older trees, made by bush bees. A lot is also gathered directly from highly colorful bush flowers.
