Artist statementTwo men were sitting each side of a waterhole. This waterhole is Tingki. The two men are Pitingaji and Wurta; they are wild with one another. They are having an argument about the land. They are from different places and they have story problems. They turned into two rocks by this waterhole. (O'Ferrall, Jimmy Pike - Desert Designs, 1995)
