Buttony or Botany is a field name, a kind of joke after Botany Bay - a place of servitude a long way
away - thus not popular with the farm hands.

Approximately 15m to the edge of the plantation.
This panel has two very striking sets of concentric circles on the lower face, and higher there are six domino cups, three cups circled by a groove, and four other cups.
Eight concentric circles, the outer one incomplete, surround a cup from which three radial grooves run. This figure is faintly linked with a cup and seven concentric circles, with two radial grooves. What is very interesting about these is that they are fresh, and that the construction of the 'circles' shows a series of straight lines that make up part of the grooves. There is a large cup and two small ones on the same surface.
