Kathleen has painted some of her country south of Balgo in the Great Sandy Desert. This country is named
Nakarra Nakarra and is the site of the Seven Sisters Tjukurrpa (Dreaming). A story about seven sisters who
travelled this country during the Tjukurrpa running from an old man who wanted to marry the youngest. Today at
Nakarra Nakarra a group of hills embody the seven sisters. The red sections of this painting represent the hills
while the white blocks of colour are the tali (sandhills).
