This is Malu Kuru (Kangaroo Eye) or Sturt Desert Pea. After a good rain the bush has many of these flowers. All covering big areas. It’s a beautiful sight to see. Much bright red with black centres, the Marlu Kuru.. That is the Kangaroo Eye.

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.
