This painting is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Warlayirti Artists, Balgo Hills which reads in part: ‘The country depicted here is Nakarra Nakarra, one of the sites of the Seven Sisters Dreaming, a story about seven sisters who travel the ancestral landscape running from an old man who wants to marry the youngest. At Nakarra Nakarra, a group of hills embody the seven sisters, among which is found a tjurnnu or soakwater, shown in the centre of the painting.’
