In Aboriginal language an equivalent of bush onion is Merne Yalke. It grows on creek bed. When the grass of the plant dried out, Aboriginal people dug up the bush onions from the soil. They clean the soils and husk it and eat it. If the bulb is white inside; it can be eaten raw or cooked. It is hard when it is raw but soft when it is cooked. Jane Hudson is very good artist. She learnt painting from her mother. Her dreaming is fire dreaming, bush onion dreaming etc. Her works are neat, bold and colorful. —M & S Textiles Australia
Aboriginal Art is one of the more ancient traditional arts in the world, going back approximately 50,000 years. In early days, Aboriginals did cave painting, rock painting, and sand or ground painting. The newer generations use acrylic paints on canvas to portray their Dreamtime. These Aboriginal artworks are sought after not only in Australia but worldwide. According to Aboriginal mythology, Dreamtime is the era when the world was dark. There was nothing on earth; the soil was soft. This was when the forefathers sprang up from underneath the soil and started building most of the requirements for their needs and that of future generations. They built mountains, rivers, waterholes, trees, and light gardens.
