Explications pour cette peinture d'art Aborigène :

Piltati is the well known Tjukurpa story of the two water serpents who live in the Piltati Rockhole with their two wives. This is Witjiti's mother's country near Kanypi on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara/Yankunytjatjara Lands in the far north of South Australia.

Witjiti says that "this is a love story; a story about two brothers and two sisters". The two watis - two brothers - two water snakes, are at the Piltati rockhole waiting for two sisters. The two women had gone to find mai - food. They were gone a long time and the men were hungry. They all live there in this rockhole. - Witjiti George.

The rabbit burrows are depicted as lines with semi circles either side. Underground water flows through these channels and the connected circles are places where the sisters travelled looking for bushtucker.
