The traditional Dilly Bag is made from reeds and various long grasses to carry food, tools and the bones of ancestors. Many of the reeds are dyed with natural resources that can create an opulent and intensely colourful useful product. The three dilly bags are used in this artwork as a metaphoric illustration that where the bags represent three women, working together, exchanging stories and sharing the responsibilities of raising children.
