This artwork represents the pikki palms - the sheath of the leaf was used to make containers for storing a valuable liquid made from water and honey to sustain the energy of women and children out gathering food. The women would also weave baskets or make shelters using the top part of the leaves. Aboriginal people firmly believe that everything needed in life is provided by the motherland in abundance and so they would find a use for all parts of the plant or animal.
