Explications pour cette œuvre :

This is Pangkapirni and all the rock holes and soaks that I remember on the western, northern and eastern sides of Karlamilyi. I grew up around that area with my mum and dad. The Seven Sisters sat down and rested [at many of these places]. When I was a child, we camped one night at Natawalu. The Seven Sisters also rested there.

Pangkapirni lies on the Canning Stock Route between Wells 35 and 36, just north of Kunawarritji. It is one of the many sites featured in the epic Minyi Puru (Seven Sisters) jukurrpa (dreamtime) narrative, in which seven sisters journey all the way across desert from Roebourne on the coast of Western Australia. As the women travel they stop to rest at many sites to eat, dance, rest and sing, on the way leaving behind an assortment of articles that become formations in the land. At Pangkapirni Yurla attempted to grab one of the sisters before they escaped into the sky to become the Pleaides constellation of stars. "Yurla chased the Minyipuru. They stopped at Pangkapini, then flew away. You can see Yurla there (today)."
