Description

Gary paints the story of the Ahakeye. This a very important story for Gary that belongs to his country, Ilkawerne (El-go-an-na) . The ahakeye, called bush plum in English by Gary, 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.
