Phillipa Butter is a young artist from Warburton Community. In her first painting ever, she wanted to show a very important and significant story for Aboriginal people: The Kungkarrangkalpa (Seven Sisters) and the old magician (Yula) who was chasing them across the country. Yula travelled through the desert during winter and summer, trying to trick the sisters with his spells until finally, the sisters ascended into the sky and all became stars. That is why, in the night sky, we can see the seven sisters (the Pleiades) followed by Yula (Orion)
