Marie Mudgedell Nakamarra Nakarra Nakarra 2005
Acrylic on canvas
1200 x 600mm

Marie has painted some of her grandmother's country named Nakarra Nakarra. Nakarra Nakarra is found south of Balgo in the Great Sandy Desert and is the site of the Seven Sisters Tjukurrpa (Dreaming), a story about seven sisters who travelled this country during the Tjukurrpa running from an old Tjapaltjarri man who wanted to marry the youngest. Today at Nakarra Nakarra a group of hills embody the seven sisters. The marks in this painting represent the tracks the sisters made as they travelled and danced through the country. The dance that the seven sisters performed is still re-created today.
