Ian,
The 'diving rods' do not appear to be held in the hands of the figure in the painting. The arms are above the head I think.
Thanks,

Have you ever tried that? and does it help you get better results, in your opinion? scratch 
I just remembered something that I read or heard somewhere was that if you hold gold to divine gold, or put a piece in your mouth. Then it needs to be gold from that area. There are a few isotopes of Gold Au197, Au196 & Au195 and yes it will make a difference which one you use. It could also be because of the percentage composition of other metals of the local gold.

My guess is that, as these people were hunter gatherers, the painting was painted as a type of chalk board lesson to show others/children. So it did not matter that the divining stick wasn't in the hand as it was painted to explain the way to find water.

Divining Rods - Page 5 Empty Lost earing

My friend had purchased these divining rods off ebay and said have a go, They were interested to see if i could get the same results as they were getting on their back yard lawn. Yep i got the same two hot spots on the back lawn, that we put down to  " Must be water ".
Next we placed a gold ring at random spots ( except on the hot spots )  around the lawn and with holding a gold ring in one hand with the diving rods wandered around and always had a major reaction with the divining rods when you went over the ring on the lawn. Tried it with a 5oz nugget at numerous spots ( except the 2 hot spots ) and had the same result every time.
Also saw a guy at an Adelaide detector show doing divining and had a positive reaction over gold, I got to have a go & it worked for me everytime.
Tried it with a couple of pieces of fencing wire when i got home and had no reaction at all. Go figure !
Had a yak with a guy in Leonora that has leases & he said that's how he goes detecting for gold, Uses a backhoe to dig the targets, He was also telling me that you can work out the depth of the target before digging by the reaction time the divining rods take to uncross when over a target. ( All this is here say as i didnt see it in operation but it gets you thinking )
My contribution to an interesting topic !
Cheers

My mother in law lost an ear ring through a shutter window. So I asked if she had the other one so I could try and divine it. She did so I went outside with a single spring divining rod. I held the ear ring in one hand and divined with the other. Under the window was a shrub and the rod pointed to it. I thought divide an conquer and cut back the shrub until there was the skeletal remains of a shrub and a pile of leaves and twigs to one side. I divined again and it still pointed to the tree. I looked all over the remains of the shrub and couldn't see the ear ring. So I divined the distance and got 87cm. I placed the spring rod straight down went and got a tape measure and measured 87cm from the tip of the rod out and then raised the tape up. To my surprise hooked on a tiny branch at exactly 87cm was the ear ring.

I did hear of a good diviner called Charlie Kruck from Maleny Qld. Charlie would take a cods tail out of the fridge when he went fishing and would divine the water holes for cod by using the tail as a divining rod. He was also called in to farms if chooks went missing. He would bring a carpet snake skin, and divine the carpet snakes that were eating the chooks. Sadly he passed away before I could meet him.

I do also know that divining doesn't work on modern day coins as they are designed not to take on a charge

OOPS almost forgot  Q41 
Crying out "GIVE ME BACK MY SWAMP" While stamping your feet only get's you a wet feet... when you live in a swamp.

Asking me politely like " Hey Ian can you PLEASE explain how to find depth by divining?" might bring the conversation back to being intellectually stimulating.
Get ya knickers out of a twist Ian Rolling Eyes 

The first line in this/my post was in line with total respect, even put a question mark at the end to ensure a reply to this amazing topic Razz

The third line in this/my post is indicative of how I saw the topic going before you even put up your first post cheers

Ounce a day ay Q36 
Sorry As you can see by other comments that this subject is often frowned upon and ridiculed. People are bought up and taught in their own ways and when you saying something like; Adam and Eve where two gay orchard workers who got busted for having sex instead of working with the only excuse that seeing a stiffy the size of a huge snake made them have a stop work sex romp, and the orchard owner who thought he was god then banned them both from site. Well...? It sort of goes against what they have been taught so they tend to call it BS and lies. All's good!

Not divining but some things cannot be explained. In my family my grandmother, mother and one of my sisters cannot wear wristwatches either mechanical windups or electronic type watches.

After a week's wearing they just stopped. The watch was taken to the watchmaker and nothing at all could be found wrong with the watch.

Yet when the watch was put on the wrist after a week it would stop running.

This I know to be a fact and do not have any explanation as to why.

Brother Rolling Eyes I am not sure what the hell you are getting at here but your confusing the hell outa me No scratch 

All art is open to personal interpretation including aboriginal art, you assume the stick is for divining therefore you assume evrything else you see in the picture relates to divining, the truth could be a very different story indeed, if you are so sure of your abilities then take up one of the challenges to do just that, I do have an open mind about divining for water as too many bores and wells have been dug with success to be all just lucky guesses, but I think some seek to refine the art beyond it's capabilities, I look forward hoping to see some more of your pictures of your mining operations when you can post pics.Wink

Interesting reading. The term paranormal was coined around the early 1900's for things that could not be explained by science. There were only five human senses known back then, and we are now up to around 137 at last count. I personally found a willow branch did not work very well for me. I did read about an extremely good diviner who used a small ball of ebonite suspended on a string. Apparently Ebonite is the stuff that lawn bowling balls are made out of. Upon researching ebonite I found that it sits at the extreme negative end of the Triboelectric table, meaning if it is rubbed by a material from the positive side of the chart it will take on a very strong negative charge.

Just trying to make people aware that people have comfort zones. This is known to be around 2 meters for the average person. Take for example a group of people at a party. If a stranger walks up and into your comfort zone it is a natural instinct to feel wary. Similarly if a stranger was to walk up and talk straight to your face you would naturally not only feel extra wary but also possibly a bit uncomfortable. The same thing happens with our thoughts as Shiraz has shown by putting up a barrier of "it's all lies" and " he's insulting my intelligence ".

I did see the lights were on at the bar on the moon last night. As Shiraz says that I am just full of BS then I conclude that it must have been Shiraz and "the man on the moon" having a few drinks while huffing and puffing, and making the tides come in and out.
