The Napaljarri-Warnu Jukurrpa (Seven Sisters Dreaming) depicts the story of the 7 Napaljarri sisters found in the night sky today in the cluster of 7 stars in the constellation Taurus, the Pleiades. Jukurra-jukurra, the morning star, is a Jakamarra man who is also in love with the 7 Napaljarri sisters and is often shown chasing them across the night sky. In a final attempt to escape from the Jakamarra the Napaljarri-warnu turned themselves into fire and ascended to the heavens to become stars. The custodians of this dreaming are Japaljarri/Jungarrayi men and Napaljarri/Nungarrayi women. It tells of the journey of Japaljarri and Jungarrayi men who travelled from Kurlurngalinypa to Yanjirlypirri and then on to Lake Mackay on the West Australian border. Along the way they performed initiation ceremonies for young men. The site depicted in this canvas is Yanjirlypiri (star) where young boys are brought to be initiated. In contemporary Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography represent the Jukurrpa, associated sites and other elements. The female star Yantarlarangi chases the 7 Napaljarri sisters for having stolen the night.
