Description
Yukuwa - root food - vine (small scrambling plant) with long edible root. Vigna Vexillata, V. lanceolata. This work is the outcome of a phase where the artist of her own motion explored lesser known plant species which she feared were being forgotten by younger generations. She wants to renew the knowledge of these plants because when she was young this is the food that she grew up on. In those days old people lived for a long time without illness.
