This painting tells the story of the Kungkarrangkalpa (Seven Sisters) and the old magician (Yula) who was searching for them for the purpose of marriage congress. The women, who had been collecting bush food could see the old magician looking for their tracks. The Sisters hid, crawling over the country where they can now be seen as stones with the magician Yula 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)
