Li-jakarambirri Seven Sisters Dreaming – 2022
Paintings – Acrylic on Canvas – 30 x 30 cm (pre-stretched)
The Seven Sister’s Dreaming is on the Crooked River which part of the McArthur River (near the mouth) in the Gulf of Carpentaria. It is a very sacred area where the Seven Sister’s (seen as Octopi) live and have their babies.
When people travel through this area by boat, they have to slow down as it might disturb them.
The Seven Sister’s Dreaming is when the Blue-Ringed Octopus is in the water, and when it 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 Pleaides.
