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.

Better World Arts
Better World Arts (BWA) has been operating for over two decades. They work with Australian Aboriginal artists from remote communities across Australia. Artists benefit from royalties paid to them on a monthly basis and art centres benefit from a substantial profit share paid on their investments. Having culturally appropriate opportunities, artists are able to supplement rural income by practicing age old traditions in their own homes located in remote beautiful villages.
