编者按:据《博茨瓦纳日报》2012510日发表的一篇名为《岩画遗址丰富旅游业》的文章称,岩画遗址为提高国内生产总值、促进农村发展和摆脱贫困做出贡献,有助于使博茨瓦纳除了野生动物的旅游服务内容呈现多样化。

Editor’s note: According to the article titled Rock Art Sites Diversify Tourism, which was published on May 10, 2012, rock art sites contribute to the national gross development product (GDP), rural development and poverty eradication and help diversify Botswana's tourism offering beyond wildlife.

 

 

Officially opening a month long rock art exhibition at the National Museum Friday, Minister of Environment, Wildlife and Tourism, Kitso Mokaila implored government departments, the private sector and local communities to work together to develop heritage sites and create an enabling environment for their sustainable use. Mokaila noted that the rock art sites exhibition, a collaboration of four countries, was testimony to the common heritage of humanity. Participating countries are Botswana, Mozambique, South Africa and Mexico. He said the appearance of ancient rock art across continents and amongst people whose histories were thought to be unrelated demonstrated that humans share a common heritage. Mokaila said heritage sites are critical traces of the rock art tradition and each one contributed to the puzzle of understanding ancient symbolism, belief systems and communication.

"Therefore any careless destruction, graffiti or defacing of the art-bearing rocks [robs] humanity of research opportunity and windows into the world of our ancestors," he said.

Mokaila also informed exhibitors and painting admirers that in the last three years, at least eight rock art sites have benefited from the presidential 100 monuments program.

In this program, he said his ministry, through the national museum and monuments department, opened access routes to heritage sites, developed walking trails, produced site information boards and employed custodians at sites. Some of the sites that benefited from the program included Matsieng in the Kgatleng area, Mamuno site on the border with Namibia, Manyana in the Southern District and Lepokole rock art sites in Bobirwa.

In his remarks, programs manager, Siyakha Mguni, said the exhibition was aimed at advancing the promotion and protection of rock art heritage. Mguni said the idea was formulated in 2005, and the project commenced in earnest in May 2011 with the initial funding from the South African Department of Arts and Culture as the regional coordination partner.

He said some countries such as Norway and China and some in the region have already shown interest in the collaboration, which he said was a welcome development because well-resourced countries would bring expertise and necessary funding for the smooth running of the project.
