Rock Art in Afrika: Mythology and Legend

Travelers to Africa who discover its rock paintings and engravings are fascinated by their aesthetic appeal, and never fail to wonder about their meaning. Rock Art in Africa: Mythology and Legend divides into four major geographical zones: The Sahara, the intertropical zone of central Africa, Aziana, and southern Africa. They are characterized by a variety of stylistic choices, ranging from accentuated realism to an almost abstract symbolism. The photographs, tracings, and drawings that illustrate Rock Art in Africa: Mythology and Legend bear witness to the originality of the art.

The author places the works in the context of their discovery by the great explorers, and then deciphers their hidden meanings, discarding erroneous traditional readings that have often been too easily adopted, and proposing new interpretations. He evokes tales and legends, which make it possible to achieve a partial elucidation of these prehistoric images and to reconstruct the mythology of the remote, or not so remote, past; he also analyses the myths that these works of art in their turn have aroused within Western culture.
