Kaikohe Berries


 Another mural spotted in Kaikohe recently, this one was painted by Charles and Janine Williams named "Kaikohe Berries" with paint donated by the Kerikeri Colour Centre. They also regularly paint other murals around New Zealand including one in I posted about in 2017 from Tauranga.

This particular mural tells the story of the town which was named after the Kohekohe fruit that sustained people in times of hardship. The diamond background represents a bird's eye view of the maunga (mountain) Tokareireia or Kaikohe Hill. 

Linking up with Mural Monday.

I read the link about the Kaikohe fruit and trees -- such wondrous plants there were in the Pacific region in pre-human times.
