9788386094943: Symbols through Time: Interpreting the Rock Art of Central Asia

The book aims to reveal the symbolic basis behind much of the rock art imagery of Central Asia (particularly that in Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan with reference to adjacent countries) through the prism of the diversity of ethnic, religious and economic traditions that provided the dynamic interactions throughout the history of this region. It starts with a short introduction to the archaeology, the preceding scholarship and the earliest rock art. Then it moves to the times of the Indo-European migrations, developing new insight into the symbolism of petroglyphs through the Indo-Iranian cosmology and cosmogony. Part three discuses the art of Iranian-Turkic "Early Nomads". Finally, the author analyses the problem of persistence of ancient art and symbolic traditions in new contexts with references to Navruz rites, interactions between shamanism and mystical Islam, and the symbolism of landscape.
