Archeï XI. The niche (Ennedi, Chad). 3D Model
The paintings decorating the Archeï XI niche form a very dense composition (YRD colour space). The heads of men and women featured by two pointed terminations are distinctive of the Fada style. The narrative intent of the composition is evident. Not a fairy tale but a history made of interlinked scenes. At the centre two men accompanied by two women, preceded by a kid, move toward a group led by a kid, composed of two men followed by two women. This meeting is happening in the peaceful framework of a campsite, populated by playful children and women seated near their lovely huts, well-provided of household items. On the left, a large herd of cattle with his herdsmen converge toward the campsite, from the outside to the inside of the niche. Reference: Alessandro Menardi Noguera 2018.
