Story: 'Piltati Tjukurpa' by Angkatji Tiger. This is a tjukurpa (creation) story from up near Amata. There were two brothers who married two sisters. The sisters are in the top left and right corners of the painting. They are digging for bushtucker near some rockholes. The lines between the holes are where the ladies have been digging – tjawani. The sisters did not come home for a long time, and the brothers said ‘lets go and change into water serpents.’ After all their digging, the sisters are thirsty and get up to go into the water, and the brothers are there, they’re waiting. When the sisters drink the water, the brothers rise up out of the rockhole as water serpents and swallow their wives.
Material: Cotton Backing, wool crewel work
