Explications pour cette œuvre :

Ka nyangatja kapi piti pulkana ini Pukara ka wati kutjara nyinanyi kuwari ka kaliny- kalinypa tjuta mai wiru mulapa. Lawrence has painted Pukara, which is a major Spinifex site on the northern boundary of the Spinifex Lands.

At Pukara Two Men (Wati Kutjara), a father and a son travel across the country , their presence is a poweful one. As a child the son was teased and grew up to have a menacing look in his eyes.

The people were scared and appealed to the father to take him away as he had become dangerous. One day the son arose early and in the morning fog to set a trap for the people, luring them in close with the sound and smell of Kalyinpa-kalyinpa and ultultkunpa, sweet foods.

As people came close the son ate them. To this day people approach the rock hole here with great care making sure the snakes are settled down with smoke first.
