Sivré II northern shelter (Ennedi, Chad)
Model_19. Sivré II shelter (CRGB colour space). The faded paintings of this panel include two stencil hands and a variety of paintings of the pre-pastoral period. A crouched human in the Sivré style is framed in a shallow oval niche at the centre of the bottom wall. An elephant, a possible sex symbol, and an ictyomorphic motif are present to its left. This last vaguely resembles a fish but could also represent an anthropomorphic figure since the lower “fin” to the right has traits recalling the usual way of depicting feet fingers in the Sivré style. The small figures in solid colour shown in a variety of poses are attributable to the Mayguili style, the oldest PPP painting style identified by Bailloud (1997). The crouched figure in the oval niche partially overlaps one of this figure. On the ceiling, to the left, a single anthropomorphic figure drawn by the outline is present. It recalls the phantom caricature of cartoonists.
