“Beyula is telling the story of the Kalinykalinypa or desert grevillea 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 off 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.
Papunya Tjupi Arts is an Aboriginal owned, community-based enterprise, representing over 100 artists. We encourage the sharing of knowledge and skills to foster self-determination and cultural development. This is done through arts practice, community activities, meaningful employment and training opportunities. All proceeds are split between the artists and the funding of further community projects. We would like to thank you for your support and welcome anyone who would like to visit. Further information is available at www.papunyatjupi.com.au”
