Description

Johnny paints the story of the wild pigeon, also known as arekwarr or arwekarr in Anmatyerre language and it is connected to the ahakeye story. The ahakeye, called wild plum in English by Johnny, is also known as the native currant or citrus (canthium attenuatum). These are both very important stories for Johnny that belong to his country, Ilkawerne. These stories, their songs, dances and symbols have been passed down to Johnny from his father, Harold Payne.
