The Black Bean is a beautiful tree found throughout Butchulla country and is common around Australia. It is easily recognisable by its large, heavy seed pods. These seeds are toxic and need processing before consuming. The method of extracting the toxin was perfected over thousands of years by the Butchulla Medicine Man.
The original artwork was created on art card using acrylic ochre colours. Detailing was added using brushes made from natural fibres.
Reproduction is 50cm x 50cm printed on 320gsm Sihl MC Cotton Rag.
