Description

Alma Granites Framed Aboriginal Art Print

This delightful print shows detail from Alma Granites artwork ‘Seven Sisters Dreaming’ (Napaljarri-warnu Jukurrpa), reproduced under license.

It depicts the story of seven ancestral Napaljarri sisters who are found in the night sky today in the cluster of seven stars in the constellation Taurus, more commonly known as the Pleiades.

The Pleiades are seven women of the Napaljarri skin group and are often depicted in paintings of this Jukurrpa carrying the Jampijinpa man ‘wardilyka’ (the bush turkey), who is in love with the Napaljarri-wamu and who represent the Orion’s Belt cluster of stars.

Jukurra-jukurra, the morning star, is ta Jakamarra man who is also in love with the seven Napaljarri sisters and is often shown chasing them across the night sky.

In a final attempt to escape from the Jakamarra the Napaljarri-wamu turned themselves into fire and ascended to the heavens to become stars.

The custodians of the Napaljarri-wamu Jukurrpa are Japaljarri/Jungarrayi men and Napaljarri/Nungarrayi women.
