Description

This painting represents Ahakeye (bush plum) at Aremela Rockhole. Aremela Rockhole is a sacred site for June and her people.

The ahakeye, called bush plum in English by June, is also known as the native currant or citrus. 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.
