A very significant tjurkurpa (story) to Anangu is Kungkarangkalpa (Seven Sisters), which is an extensive creation story relating to the Pleiades constellation. The story traverses Australia taking different forms but local women are privy to the part of the story which takes place in the country near Ernabella.

In her paintings Janice is depicting a salt lake near Attila (Mt Connor), a landmark in the Seven Sisters story.
