Description

Mary paints the story of the northern wild orange flowers, known as Akarley in Mary's language. The wild oranges hang down on long stalks, turning yellow or a red tint when ripe, most commonly during the month of February. Young fruit are often ripened in hot sand.

There is an ancient Dreamtime story of the Akarley, belonging to her country Atnwengerrp, which Mary and other women of her country share with younger generations of women and girls.
