Ahakeye (Bush Plum) at Aremela Rockhole MB054398-June Bird Ngale

This painting represents Ahakeye (bush plum) at Aremela Rockhole. Aremela Rockhole is a sacred site for June and her people. In this painting, concentric circles represent Aremela Rockhole.

The ahakeye, called bush plum in English by June, 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. In this painting, the dot work represents the fruit of the bush plum.
