Harold is a 'boss man' of Ilkawerne country, south of the Utopia Region. In Dec 2000/Jan 2001, Mbantua Gallery exhibited for the first time Atyetyart stories representing the men from this area. Harold is the main story teller of Atyetyart stories - stories about the 'olden day people', he says. These stories were passed down to him by his father. Harold says the passing of stories through the generations keeps the stories alive and the country strong.

Description

Harold paints the story of the Ahakeye. This a very important story for Harold that belongs to his country, Ilkawerne (El-go-an-na) . The ahakeye, called bush plum in English by Harold, is also known as the native currant or citrus. This shrub produces small white flowers, deep green citrus-like leaves and the ahakeye, which are black when ripe and very small. This fruit is favoured for its sweet taste and can be reconstituted in water if dry.
