"Kapi Mulyanya, piti tjuta. Wanampi mama. Miilmiilpa.

This place is Mulyanya. There are many water holes. The father watersnake man is here. This is a dangerous and sacred place."

This painting shows a detail of the Wati Kutjara (Two Man) story from Pukara as it passes through Mulyanya. The Wanampi (magical water serpent), a father and his son, are travelling on

initiations across the lands. Here Roy depicts the father surrounded by waterholes created by serpent men.

Mulyanya is a powerful place which has a water source guarded by dangerous water snakes. It needs to be visited by Anangu with the authority and power to pacify the snakes through a smoking process.
