Artwork story: Bok fight was played when the segmented grass would grow after the rain season. This grass is a ridged grass that also contains water the we would chew on when thirsty. We made bow and used the bok as the arrows. This was a dangerous game but we never tried to hurt anyone but would rather flee or surrender then cause injury.
The artwork show the environment we played in had potential dangerous elements that we were aware of and not to confront or look out for, such as the snakes or hornet.
