Rock Art Rocks! with Ndukuyakhe Ndlovu

In a thought provoking discussion, Ndukuyakhe got us to think critically about some of the established views on rock art – in particular around the spiritual significance attached to the eland. Considering frequencies of species represented in the art as well as other characteristics of the art in Northern KZN Ndukuyakhe queried whether some of the existing views stand up in the light of his research.

The talk was presented to scholars and rock art enthusiasts as well as the general public. Scholars were offered the chance to win a trip to Game Pass Shelter by answering the question “Why is it important to research rock art” and to ask parents and grandparents for their views as well.
