In this painting, the Hills of Yanjirlpirri, an important sacred site near Yuendumu, is being depicted. Alma Nungarrayi Granites paints the story of seven Napaljarri sisters, who in order to escape from a Jakamarra man chasing them out of love, turn into fire and ascend into the night sky, where they become a cluster of starts in the constellation Taurus.
Granites uses different hues of blue to give depth and mystery to the night sky. The sky is speckled with dots of white, orange and blue, representing the stars and in the upper right corner, a bright red dot represents a planet. The seven sisters are clustered together on the right side of the painting and on the left is the star representing Jampijinpa, who is also in love with the seven sisters and is also Orion’s Belt. The stars are made up of dots ranging in color from violet, orange, white, blue, red, and many other hues and they are each surrounded by a light blue halo of light. The interesting use of a dotted texture is what makes this painting stand out, capturing the viewer’s eye and drawing them into a world of depth, love and mystery.
