About this product
- DescriptionAfrican Rock Art is the only book of its kind to examine this particular form of art throughout Africa. The paintings and engravings discovered on African rocks are amazing works of art that hold clues to understanding the history of humankind. Jean-Loic Le Quellec offers an expert analysis of this primitive art form, supplemented by photographs that capture the originality of prehistoric man's creativity. He divides Africa into four geographical zones: the Sahara, the Horn and East Africa, Southern Africa, and the west and central continent. Each zone is characterized by a unique artistic and representational style, ranging from realism to modern symbolism. The author places the artworks into the context of their discovery by the great explorers and evokes legendary tales to elucidate these enduring traces of prehistory.
- Author BiographyJean-Loic Le Quellec is an ethnologist, anthropologist, and specialist in prehistory and Saharan rock art who has published a dozen books on the subject. Translator Paul Bahn is also an expert on archaeology who has written, among other works, The Cambridge Illustrated History of Prehistoric Art and Archeology: A Very Short Introduction (Oxford Press, 2000). He edited the Collins Dictionary of Archaeology and has translated numerous books on rock and cave art.
