"In the Torres Strait Islands, the Aubau (Noni Fruit) we use as traditional medicine. The leaves are used to treat diabetes & liver diseases whilst the fruit is consumed to treat sore throat & flu. This print signifies the health & wellbeing of my people and also represents a cleansing of the body, soul & mind." - Matilda Nona
