Is it the reflection of the life of the San as they
lived thousands of years ago, depicting hunting scenes,
religious beliefs, commercial life, dancing and their
everyday struggle to survive?
Until recently, most amateur and professional anthropologists
looked at a painting and believed that they could decipher
it without any problems. The pieces that they didn't
understand were passed of as crude art or that the artist
had too much to drink or smoke.
This has now found not to be the case, and their work
is recognised as holding deep spiritual and religious
meaning. The rock art represents one of the longest-
enduring traditions of art-making known.
