Our old people taught us to look at the sky – the stars , the milkyway – for the sky talks to us and tells us many things . The sky tells us when to collect emu egg, to take the young out to teach tracking skills, to go out bush for family time . We can see Seven Sisters close to the horizon getting ready to go under the water we know emu eggs ready . That sky talks to us and we know – we follow the sky and the stars – Seven Sisters.
Taking a liking to it so much they have since acquired the piece and it is now a permanent resident of the museum.
