Rosetta Stone of Rock Art, South Africa 3D Model
This site is commonly referred to as the “Rosetta Stone” of southern African rock art because it was in this iconic panel that archaeologists first uncovered a significant key to understanding the symbolism of San rock art. First thought to be simple reproductions of everyday life and hunting by a primitive people, many of the mystical images are now seen as ‘therianthropic’, or images seen by shamans (healers) while in dance-induced trances.
