Description

Kathy paints the story of the Ahakeye (Bush PLum). This is a very important story for Kathy. This story, its songs, dances and symbols have been passed down to Kathy from her father. The ahakeye, called bush plum in English by Kathy, 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.

Fine dots represent the seeds of bush plum.
