This painting shows different families sitting around the fire telling the dreaming story of the Seven Sisters to the young ones: 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 the magician Yula as a prominent currajong tree. Eventually, the Kungkarrangkalpa (Seven 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).
