Sivré II Cupules
Cupules are archaeological artefacts frequently found in the Ennedi rock art sites. Cupules are observed at particular locations, on shelters floors, on boulders and also on vertical walls. Notwithstanding their presence in many painted shelters can assume striking appearance, they have been neglected up to now. The Sivré II cluster of cupules is found in a context where only paintings of the pre-pastoral period (Archaic Period in the terminology established by Bailloud) are present. Therefore, there is a chance that these cupules are at least as old as the paintings of the pre-pastoral period if not older.
