This painting shows the designs painted on the breasts of women dancing in the Seven Sisters song line ceremonies, specifically those related to sacred places at Kurrualya. The broad white oval shapes show the mythic ceremonial grounds created by the Sisters as they moved across the country. The Ngaanyatjarra word ‘Kurrualya’ means, ‘wide open eye’.
