Jack had two wives and fi ve children the only other child by Rosie is Greeny Purvis the wellrespected Anmatyerre elder and famous artist.
Greeny and Evelyn both share the plant totem of their late Aunt the bush yam which is a native subterranean source of food and water. Evelyn represents her dreaming totem in many different styles, from pictorial representations of the plants edible root system to the explosive nature of a germinating yam seed.
