Li-jakarambirri Seven Sister Dreaming – 2021
Paintings – Acrylic on Canvas – 51 x 61 cm (pre-stretched canvas)
The Seven Sister Dreaming is on the Crooked river which part of the MacArthur River near the mouth in the Gulf of Carpentaria. It is a very sacred area where the seven sister’s live and have their babies. When people travel through there by boat they have to slow down as it might disturb them. The seven sister dreaming is when the blue ringed octopus is in the water, and is touched with a stick its rings shine bright blue like the stars. At night the seven sisters can be seen in the sky as a small group of stars that are called the Plea ides.
