This composition from the eastern wall of the Gaora Halagana-III cave includes a scene of a dead woman lying on a carpet, surrounded by her loved ones (upper right corner of the panel). It was made famous worldwide because of a postage stamp reproduced from one of the Bailloud’s surveys (1957), significantly titled “Veillée Funèbre” (Funeral Watch). The popularized scene is the most important, being the key to an orderly narrative, which is revealed clearly by merely labelling the different scenes. The funeral is taking place on the outskirt of a village with women and children shown near their huts. Women are working on the grindstone, mortar or busy in conversations. On the upper-middle, a drum player is making the warriors of the clan dancing in honour of the dead matriarch. Touching each other should is the traditional way of expressing condolence (processed by DStretch_CRGB). Reference: The Duellers’ Shelter (Ennedi, Chad).
