Mother and daughter represented in this painting the dreaming story of the Kungkarrangkalpa (Seven Sisters): The women, who had been collecting bush food could see the old magician looking for their tracks. The Sisters hid themselves, crawling over the country where they can now be seen as stones with Yula (the old magician)  as a prominent Currajong tree. Eventually the Kungkarrangkalpa 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)
