Nakarra Nakarra

Kathleen has painted some country south of Balgo in the Great Sandy Desert. The country depicted here is named Nakarra Nakarra. This is the site of the Seven Sisters Dreaming, a story about seven sisters who travelled this country during the Tjukurrpa (Dreamtime), running from an old man who wanted to marry the youngest. Today at Nakarra Nakarra a group of hills embody the seven sisters. The circles represent the tjurrnu (soakwaters) that are found in this country.
