编者按:据《新闻24201244日发表的署名为邓肯·阿尔弗雷斯的文章称,谷歌与南非国家美术馆和金山大学岩画研究院合作将使古代非洲洞窟岩画可在线获取。

Editor’s note: According to the article by Duncan Alfreds released on News24 on April 4, 2012, ancient African cave paintings will become available online as Google partners with the South African National Gallery and Wits Rock Art Research Institute.

 

 

Art from the Giant's Castle Nature Reserve and Kamberg Nature Reserve will go online as well as several works by artists such as Sophie Peters, Thami Mnyele and Alexis Preller. Virtual visitors can browse them via Google's Art Project.

"We encourage you to come to make a pilgrimage to these special sites. Be inspired - by visiting these sites you will not only have a life changing journey into the African past, you will be helping to preserve our priceless heritage for future generations," said Professor Benjamin Smith, director of the Rock Art Research Institute.

The project is part of Google's program of illustrating unique sites, including the Amazon and a recent partnership with the Catlin Seaview Survey which allows visitors to have a 360° view of the Great Barrier Reef.

"Through the Art Project we’re aiming to bring local history and culture online and make it accessible," said Dr. Julie Taylor, Google's head of communications for Sub-Saharan Africa.

Virtual explorations

Users are able to search for specific art and the internet giant has integrated Google+ Hangouts into the service. Image quality has also been upgraded to allow better viewing.

"Making our art accessible over the internet means that so many more people across South Africa and globally can now enjoy a selection of the artworks in the Iziko South African National Gallery permanent collection," said Riason Naidoo, director of the South African National Gallery.

Users can also conduct virtual explorations of galleries from Google Maps as well as create custom galleries of their own to share with friends.

"The Art Project is no longer just about the Indian student wanting to visit Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. It is now also about the American student wanting to visit the National Gallery of Modern Art in Delhi," said Amit Sood, head of Google's Art Project.
