Due to the ardification process that affected the Ennedi region at the beginning of the current era, sheep of the Sahelian breed have progressively supplanted cows as the most important animals for the survival of local populations. This decorated niche in the northern Baradergolo shelter illustrates the phenomenon. Initially decorated with a representation of cows, it was later enriched with flocks of sheep. Curiously, the cow in the center of the niche has been respected by the painters who added flocks of sheep over time. It is not a rare phenomenon in the decorated sites of the Ennedi. Probably some cows painted in particular positions have a symbolic meaning. Sheep are easily distinguished from cows by their udders with only two teats (texture of the 3D model processed by DStretch GRGB). Alessandro Menardi Noguera 2020.
