Timo Hogan applies the paint to Lake Baker with the quiet authority of someone recreating the country they know intimately. He surveys the Tjukurpa (Creation Lines) of his birthright and brings them into focus on the two dimensional plane. In this painting Timo has depicted Wati Kutjara Tjukurpa (Two Men Creation Line) which forms a major portion within Lake Baker and is where the two men encounter a powerful Wanampi (water serpent) that resides there. Timo narrates the movement of the Wanampi that has returned to his kapi piti ngura (home in the waterhole) after being out in search of food. The two men have also been out hunting and have returned to their rightful place within the landscape. These characters are the creation beings who shaped the landscape as they moved through it, leaving the indelible physical reminders of their power and presence and who for Timo, very much still exist today.
