This is a popular dreamtime story of seven ladies being chased through the desert by one man. There are numerous scenarios as these ladies travel around. Eventually they rise up into the sky and form the Pleiades, a group of seven stars seen in the southern skies. Here Anmanari has painted Kuru Ala, a sacred place for women in her mother's country. The sisters picked quandongs here while being watched by the lusty old man.
