    This coloured linocut print features three wild apples on a sprig in heavy black outline. The red bush apple (Syzygium suborbiculare) is a common bush tucker in northern Australia. A rare form occurs in the coastal areas of the Tiwi Islands with pink fruit called pinyama, the pink beach apple. The fruit are produced during Jamutakari, the wet season, and are one of the most important Tiwi bush foods.
