Wild Yam 2 dates to 1995 

It's one of a number of pieces drawn from the highly regarded Thomas Vroon collection.

"These museum quality artworks range from early stone carved shields, extraordinary bark paintings of erotic spirit figures and Wanjina beings, early Papunya paintings from the beginnings of the Western Desert art movement, to contemporary paintings by the most acclaimed artists in the field, including Rover Thomas and Emily Kngwarreye."
