cf. For work with strikingly similar format and design see Two Men Dreaming, Nangara: the Australian Aboriginal Art Exhibition from the Ebes collection, Melbourne: The Aboriginal Gallery of Dreamings, 1996, vol 1, p.41, cat. no.22; vol 2, cat. no.22 (illus.)

The Story is of a place called Kutijinya, where Two Men are shown lying with their backs to the fire between them. They are important Men as shown by the large shapes and strong forms. Between the men and all around them are Kutiji (bean seeds). These seeds are used as food and also for decoration.
