Nelly has an intimate knowledge of the Seven Sisters Story, an epic Tjukurpa (creation) story in which a man, Wati Nyiru, chases seven sisters across the whole of Australia in an attempt to marry the eldest. He chased them from Whyalla, down to Port Augusta, and then near Canberra. Wherever the sisters camped, Wati Nyiru would follow. This artwork depicts some of the places where the sisters camped.
