Ahakeye (Bush Plum) Dreaming MB053915-Motorbike Paddy Ngale

In this painting, Motorbike paints the story of the Ahakeye. This is a very important story for Motorbike that belongs to his country. This story, its songs, dances and symbols have been passed down to Motorbike from his ancestors. The ahakeye, called bush plum in English by Motorbike, is also known as the native currant or citrus. It belongs to the canthium attenuatum shrub which grows about 3m high. 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. Dot work represents the ahakeye.
