Grass Seed Dreaming

by artist Barbara Weir

 
U05


Grass Seed is one of the major dreaming themes of Barbara’s works.  The beautiful combination of fine line, texture and tonal colour evokes the sense of movement amongst the spinifex grasses found in the Utopia region.  The seeds of the grasses were once a major source of food collected by the women, crushed and made into a paste to produce bread.
