Sinopsis: From front flap: In this book Dr. Lewis-Williamis undertakes a broad survey of the rock art southern Africa., He discuses the discovery, distribution and age of both rock paintings and rock engravings and provides a brief account of their social and economic context. He looks at nineteenth- and twentieth-century ethnographic accounts of the Bushmen in his attempts to interpret more clearly the often enigmatic figures and scenes depicted in the paintings. He goes on to reveal a fascinating association between the work of the Bushman artists and the experiences and hallucinations of Bushman medicine men. This lavishly illustrated book provides a valuable introduction to a little-known art tradition.
