Acrylic on canvas 835 x 1400mm $6000
This painting depicts the Kungkarrangkalpa (Seven Sisters) at the place Kuruyarla, which is the artist's country.
There are rockholes and shelters (wiltja) here. The sisters are digging for a carpet snake and sing as they dig.
They chase the snake to Kulyuru. When the snake comes out of the hole, they dance and sing.
