Seven Sisters - Nyapanyapa Yunupinu Wendy


As told by the artist:

These are Gan'yu (stars). They are the stars that belong to us, the Yirritja people...stars. They are moving across the sky and we are watching them. These stars for us, the Mangatharra (Yirritja moieties). We sing these stars and we cry them. We cry.

It's a Gumatj clan song and tears.

Look! There stand the stars. What should we do? Shall we cry?
