Arlperre is a significant site on Utopia Station. This is country that belongs to the Kngale and Kemarre custodians who paint the Bush Plum or Conkleberry, which thrives for one in every seven years after huge storms. The orange, red, blue purple colours represent different degrees of ripeness of the plum with the purple indicating it is suitable to eat.
The final flurish of white dots over laying the canvas represent the sun dried leaves, seeds, husks and grasses of Arlperre.Share
