This is an epic Tjukurpa, creation story. A man, Wati Nyiru chases 7 sisters across Australia shaping the land as they went. He wanted to marry the big sister and sang about how much he wanted her. The girls kept running and escaped into the sky becoming the Pleiades constellation, and Wati Nyiru became Orion, forever unable to catch the sisters.
The striking black and white design of this beatuful pillow tells a creation story of a man who chases seven sisters across Australia. He sang about his love for the big sister but never caught her - and they are now Orion and thePleiades constellation in the sky.
