Product description

Review

This little book is exceptional in that the subject is so clearly explained. It was wonderful to learn that [South African former] President Thabo Mbeki incorporated a San rock painting into our new national coat of arms. I recommend you dip into this pocket book. You won t be disappointed.
Dee Andrew, Citizen, "Citi Vibe," South Africa"

Making sense of these fascinating artifacts as a novice requires the assistance of an informed guide and Lewis-Williams credentials speak for themselves. This deceptively ordinary-looking book is a fascinating read and will spur you on your travels to view as many San paintings as you can at close-hand, fuelled by your newfound knowledge of the complexity of the beliefs, rituals, and practices of the first inhabitants of South Africa.
"Sunday Tribune," "Sunday Magazine," South Africa"

(San Rock Art) serves as an excellent introduction to the possibilities of studying the subject and would be useful in many sorts of classes. Professionals will also find the volume useful for both general concepts and clear and concise summaries of many of the key points of Lewis- Williams interpretive efforts. In summary, this book is a good read. I recommend it for all levels of those interested in the subject of rock art.
"Azania: Archeological Research in Africa""

Perhaps only the eloquent and succinct prose of J.D. Lewis-Williams could present, examine and explain the ethnology and artistry of the San culture in such a quintessential manner. From explanations of the 'terpsichorean exercises' and the all-important 'trance-dance' to how the San person, shaman or not, can use a painting to go through the 'veil' to the spirit world beyond, the author reveals a world of ethnographic and artistic potency.
