Description

This painting depicts an important Ngaanyatjarra women’s story, Kungkarangkalpa (Seven Sisters Dreaming). Seven sisters were travelling from Warnan to Warakurna. A wati (man) spied on them whilst they were digging deep water holes for drinking water. He wanted to make the youngest one his wife but the sisters ran away and hid from him. They then crossed the country passing through sand hills and dug for water as there was none in the creeks. Eventually they reached Docker River where they were safe from the man.
