This is a design based on the many native flowers which grow locally in the Musgrave ranges. Flowers are important to the women and much excitement is felt as they burst into life in the country. The arrival of flowers indicates abundance and that various bush foods and medicines will now be available.

Desert Mob is presented annually in Mparntwe | Alice Springs on Arrernte Country.

On behalf of Desart’s staff and art centre members, the Executive Committee humbly and respectfully acknowledge the Arrernte Apmereke Artweye (Traditional Owners) and Kwertengerle (Traditional Managers) of Mparntwe.
