"This is a dangerous place, Pukara. There are Wanampi kutjara (two water snakes), father and son. The two snake men saw that the Anangu women were collecting bush foods. The son snuck back to where the food was at night and stole all the food the women had collected. They saw him and speared him in the side. This is a true story. The two snakes still live at this place." Artist Statement
