Seven Sisters Design Large Tote Bag

Seven Sisters Design Large Tote Bag
Nelly Patterson created the artwork Seven Sisters Tjukurrpa. This is an epic Tjukurrpa, or creation story. A man, Wati Nyriu, chased seven sisters across Australia, shaping the land as they went. He wanted to marry the big sister and sang about how much he wanted her. The girls kept running and escaped into the night sky, becoming the Pleiades constellation, and Wati Nyriu became Orion, forever unable to catch the sisters. A generous carry bag made from durable canvas with an internal zippered pocket and magnetic stud closure.
