This is a Tsoro game board located under this overhang. The area was obviously use for quite some time as s shelter.
This game has been around for hundreds of years and is still played today. It involves placing several stones/seeds in each hole and moving them around the board taking and placing them in the different holes. (in a way, similar to Draughts)
This rock has been hollowed out with years of use as a grinding stone for grinding grain. Probably from the same era as the herder art from yesterday. (Same location)
These are pretty cool patterns. But I wouldn’t know if they mean anything.
Apparently this is herder art, and so would be a lot more recent than the bushmen paintings.
This painting stands next to a large overhang which seems to have been inhabited at some stage judging by the clay shrouds and other stone implements lying around.
These 3 kudu bulls are in a very different style to the other bushmen paintings. I wonder if this isn’t another era of art?
Pretty neat abstract images though.
What could this long line of parallel dots be? There are no other paintings on this rock face.
Surely they have to be man made. Is this maybe a hunter notching off his kills?
Why did they paint these kudu at this angle? And why didn’t they paint on the smooth surface below?
Was the artist using the texture in the rock as part of his drawing?
