Exhibited Songlines Coo-ee Christmas 2012, Coo-ee Aboriginal Art Gallery, NSW Sydney December 2012 Story Belulya tells the story of the Kaliny kalinpa or desert grevillia flower, a favourite bush food for Anangu people and quite a delicacy. Kalinykalinypa grows in the sandy soils on the plains. The beautiful orange coloured flowers are picked early in the morning and placed in a billycan of water to create honeywater ( cordial ) or sucked straight from the branch for their sweet honey dew. More often than not Anangu move from flower to flower bending it to them so they can suck the nectar rather than picking it.
