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 seven sisters become the Napaljarri-warnu.
This epic narrative is explored from the perspective of a number of Indigenous artists, culminating in an exhibition of works that are as intricate as they are expansive.
Artists include Athena Nangala Granites, Andrea Adamson and Gabriella Possum Nungurrayi.
