Lily Lion Kngwarrey 'Ilyarnayt Flowers and Leaves' Paintings Design Flowers

Lily Lion MB34523, MB35621, MB35644 and MB034152 paintings are beautiful and inspiring and have the physical presence of the much contemporary work of art.

Lily pays particular attention to the details. Painted with with fascinating accuracy of macroscopically tiny dots and delicate brush strokes and intricate shades of colour give an illusion of multi dimensional appearance.

Lily designs represent Dreamtime stories of 'Ilyarnayt' Flower, (a variety of Acacia).

Lily’s Dreamtime stories belong to her countries Ngkwarlerlanem and Arnkawenyerr.

The stories featured include Rainbow (Mpwelarr), Ilyarn and Ilyarnayt, Tharrkarr (sweet honey grevillea, Yerramp (Honey Ant) and also a variety of Alpeyt (flowers). 

Lily paintings tell the dreamtime story of Ilyarn or Ilyarnayt representing 'Ilyarnayt' seeds and Ilyarnayt leaves.

Ilyarn or Ilyarnayt plant is a common variety of Acacia. It is particularly appreciated for the abundance of edible grubs living in its roots (known simply as ilyarnayt and are similar to a witchetty grub) and also its seeds (ntang ilyarnayt).

These seeds can be collected, ground into a paste and used for making damper (bread).

As is common for many acacia's, this plant has small lemon-yellow ball flowers and many artists from Ngkwarlerlanem and Arnkawenyerr in northern Utopia are found to paint them.

The seeds are also commonly found in their paintings, represented through dot work, and sometimes the grubs are depicted as well. There is an important Dreamtime story for this plant that belongs to these countries.
