About the painting
The Seven Sisters Dreamtime story is an epic tale of lust, love, passion and danger. Artists who paint this Dreaming explain it is the story of an Ancestral Being in the guise of a man who relentlessly pursues seven sisters (Ancestral Women) over land and sky. In hot pursuit, the man travels great distances from Western Australia into the APY Lands, and later the protagonists’ cross-country travels take him into Warlpiri country, where the sisters become the Napaljarri-warnu. The songline for this Dreamtime travels through many different language groups that tell this tale with their version of the narrative.
