Sivré III, western niche (Ennedi, Chad)
Model_20. Sivré III western segment (DStretch enhanced texture, CRGB colour space). A small niche densely covered by cattle figures and few humans, in the Fada style (final bovine period), located a short distance from the famed Sivré III shelter, home to the “Two Martians” (Bailloud 1960). A runner figure is following to the right the herd shown on the ceiling. Five human figures, including a woman in a long skirt, decorate the left side of the niche. The man at the composition centre brandishes a club ending in a bulb, a kind of weapon known from West Africa to Southern Africa (also known as “knobkerries”). Read more here.
