Comments

Wajarri-Noongar artist Christine ‘Jugarnu’ Collard’s stunning artwork tells the indigenous story of the Seven Sisters, in the star clusters Pleiades in the constellation Taurus. The Yamaji people of the Murchison region in Western Australia know that when the constellation sits low on the horizon at sunset emu eggs are ready for harvesting. The brightness of the star indicates the rainfall outlook.

Issued by the RAM in a capsule in a plush case.
