Egg Lacquerware Ornamental -AAD777
Artist: Andrea Mimpitja Adamson
The sisters created the landscape as they tried to escape from Wati Nyiru. They created a rock hole which went under the ground and came up on the other side of the hill. The women dived into the water then flew up into the sky. Wati Nyiru followed them . Now, Wati Nyiru can be seen to the south of the seven sisters (the Pleiades), as he still chases them across the sky.
