Explications pour cette œuvre :

Depicted here is Kunapila, the site of a large lynji (claypan) and soak. Kunapila lies south of Raarki (Well 27) and east of Wantili (Well 25) along the Canning Stock Route.

There is also a large, distinctive yapu (hill) at Kunapila. In the Wati Kujarra
jukurrpa (Two Men Dreaming) narrative, two men travelled around, creating hills and soaks along the way.

At the site of Kunapila they saw a large black and smaller brown goanna. Here the men painted themselves and the goannas, one with black ochre and the other with brown. They continued on their journey from here.
