Bush Banana – Yuparli Jukurrpa

This dreaming is about the Yuparli or bush banana plant that grows near Lajamanu. The fruit is green and a long oval shape. It is very sweet to eat. The bush bananas winds itselfs around the trees, first it has fluffy flowers before the fruit develops. The fruit forms and becomes round and then grows bigger and bigger.
