Jennifer Forbes Kungkarangkalpa (Seven Sisters Story) 2017
Acrylic on canvas
920 x 920mm
$1800

This is a major Tjukurpa for Irrunytju (Wingellina) and across the central Australian deserts. The seven sisters travelled from Kaliwarra to Wannan in Western Australia, stopping at significant sites and rockholes including Kuru Ala, a sacred place for women. They encountered a lustful man named Wati Nyiru, who chased them around the desert. The big circles in this painting represent the elder sisters, and the little circles represent the little sisters. They are travelling separately. Some of the details of this Tjukurpa (Dreaming story) are sacred and can't be repeated.
