Visionary Animal: Rock Art from Southern Africa


Bib-Woodstock. Art. An illustrated collection that takes stock of current knowledge and proposes a new way of reading indigenous art. For thousands of years, nomadic hunter-gatherers assigned a fundamental role to the visualization of the animals who shared their lives.
