Story from the certificate of authenticity: 

A very significant tjurkurpa (story) to Anangu is Kungkarangkalpa (Seven Sisters) which is an extensive creation story relating to the Pleiades constellation. The story traverses Australia taking different forms, but local women are privy to the part of the story which takes place in the country near Ernabella.

In her paintings Janice is depicting a salt lake near Attila (Mt Connor), a landmark in the Seven Sisters story. This story has been passed down to her by senior artist and aunt Renita Stanley. In this part of the story the three sisters are walking and traveling south through this country. The salt lake that is a part of this arid county comes alive after the rain. As the kapi (water) moves across the land it transforms the colour and light on the land and Janice is painting this change and movement.
