Artist statement, 2017The circles of this design represent rock holes, where water collects after the rains. These rock holes were an important source of water during the dry season when most of the water holes and creeks dried up. Water is an essential element in the desert. Knowledge of rock hole sites is passed on from generation to generation and revered by all Anangu (people) Pitjantjatjara. (Courtesy Ernabella Arts Inc.)
