The Tanzanian rock paintings, perhaps initiated as far back as 29,000 years ago are clear and fascinating portrayals of human life in the Stone Age. The artists drew hunting scenes depicting lions and elephants, they showed rhinoceroses pursuing each other in courtship, people bathing, even tribesmen arguing over a young girl. Sadly, the art of these Tanzanian rock shelters is vanishing fast. Rain and wind have taken their toll, aided by vandalism. But a lasting record remains, created by Mary Leakey who, with her husband Louis, in the early 1950s, painstakingly traced the paintings of 186 rock shelters and then recreated the paintings in their original colors. A selection of these unique works of art is published here for the first time, with detailed captions by Mary Leakey, giving the background to each painting and exploring its significance in terms of our present knowledge of prehistoric man. -- From publisher's description.

More than 400 rock paintings adorn the Canadian Shield from Quebec, across Ontario and as far west as Saskatchewan. The pictographs are the legacy of the Algonkian-speaking Cree and Ojibway, whose roots may extend to the beginnings of human occupancy in the region almost 10,000 years ago. Archaeologist Grace Rajnovich spent fourteen years of field research uncovering a multitude of clues as to the meanings of the paintings. She has written a text which is unique in its ability to "see" the paintings from a traditional native viewpoint. Skilfully weaving the imagery, metaphors and traditions of the Cree and Ojibway, the author has recaptured the poetry and wisdom of an ancient culture. Chief Willie Wilson of the Rainy River Band considers Grace’s work "innovative and original."

It has long been known that all forms of art – rock paintings, carvings and scribings, and also portable sculpture – are present at various locations throughout Africa. This book was the first inclusive survey and brings together in one volume accounts of African rock art which were previously scattered in scholarly monographs, journals and travellers’ tales. The range of the coverage is geophysically comprehensive, from the Atlas Mountains to the Cape of Good Hope. The art styles are set into a firm chronological framework, and are displayed against a background of human, physical and cultural evolution. Considerable discussion is also devoted to the varied purposes which the paintings and carvings served in the communities which produced them, looking at the differing interpretations fully and fairly. A fascinating collection of illustrations, some in colour, truly reflects the variety of forms in which African rock art is manifested. Originally published 1984.

Mysterious, dramatic, enlightening _ Aboriginal rock paintings of Australia are extraordinary glimpses into a culture older than Europeancivilisations, yet still immensely vibrant today. Australia s world-famous Aboriginal rock art can be found all over the country, from Tasmania to the Kimberley. The paintings depict everyday events such as hunting and corroborees, as well as the places and stories of legendary creator ancestors. Fish, wombats, kangaroos and snakes weave their way across the rock, as do the often haunting Dreamtime figures of lightning spirits, serpents and skybeings. Elaine Godden s text helps to explain the paintings and their stories, while Jutta Malnic s photographs perfectly capture the mystery and beauty of the images. Rock Paintings of Aboriginal Australia is a wonderful collection of some of the most fascinating and important art to be found in Australia.
