There are two parts to the Pencil Yam story that Eileen paints.
Two different seeds were borne that created two different species of pencil yam; one called Atnwelarr which belongs to Alhalkere and Atnangkere countries, and the other called Arlatyeye which belongs to Eileen’s country. Eileen paints the seeds of Arlatyeye.
