There are many types of waterholes that Anangu can use and they depend on their intimate knowledge of the environment to know where and when they will find water. Sometimes a soakage will have dried up and the women must use their digging sticks to find the water under the surface. They transport it back to their families by carrying it in wooden bowls which are carried on their heads.
Dots and lines are like the patterns of different desert vegetation types and concentric circles linked by lines can represent waterholes and river courses or the travelling and resting places of Creation Ancestors and Anangu.
