About this artwork

Myra Cook was born at a special place called Kartjinguku, a creek situated near Warakurna

This painting depicts a story from her birthing place.  When she was a little baby her family travelled near Puli Yuliya (Rawlingson Ranges) from creek to creek.  “I was a little one” she explains.  Myra grew up there in Warakurna Country.

The seven sisters also travelled through this country.  They also stopped at Kartjinguku Creek and then crawled to Docker River where they drowned in a waterhole.  Nothing more can be said.
