The Napaljarri-warnu Jurkurrpa (Seven Sisters Dreaming) depicts the story of the seven ancestral Napaljarri sisters who are found in the night sky today in the cluster of seven stars in the constellation Taurus, more commonly known as the Pleiades. The Pleiades are seven women of the Napaljarri skin group and are often depicted in paintings of this Jukurrpa carrying the Jampijinpa man 'wardilya' (the bush turkey who is in love with the Napaljarri-warnu and who represents the Orion's Belt cluster of stars.
