The Painted Forest: Amazonian cosmovision journeys in San José de Guaviare, Colombia
Non-Society event, supported by the Prehistoric Society.
Rock art offers a glimpse into the earliest artistic expressions of humans around the world. Art gives a voice to people, a voice that can endure over time. Around the world, the genesis of artistic expression is recorded in rock art, providing a gateway to how early humans sought to navigate and understand their place in the world. These images record the voices that shaped and influenced burgeoning cosmologies, social norms and relationships with nature, laying the cultural foundations for generations to come.
