Aboriginal Art Symbols - Connected Waterholes

  • The Aboriginal art symbol for connected waterholes is a combination of concentric circles (waterhole symbols) linked together by wavy lines (water symbol).
  • Waterholes are both social and sacred sites for Aboriginal communities and the rivers and gullies that link them form natural pathways for people to travel between them.
  • Connected waterholes are one of the most common symbols in Aboriginal art as they provide reliable information about the location of water, some of which may be hidden below the surface of the arid landscape.
