 From Cave Art to IFRAO

Even if the appearance of rock art in the world is certainly much earlier than that of European cave art, what is called “Cave Art” is one of the longest traditions known and probably the most studied. It spread across all Europe from the extreme south of the Iberian Peninsula to the Urals and lasted for more than 25,000 years. Painting and engraving on rocks is thus a fundamental characteristic of modern humans. All over the world people have left millions of images testifying to their beliefs, myths and practices, making rock art one of the most precious heritage of Humankind. That heritage is dreadfully threatened nowadays, not only by the normal natural processes it has always known, but by the drastic changes brought about in people’s lives by “modernity” and the disappearance of respect and traditions. Degradations and destructions gradually diminish it on all continents. It is one of the main roles of IFRAO, probably its most important one, to fight for its preservation by enlightening the public about its paramount importance and interest.

 A Rio Grande Legacy: Painted Walls and Images on Stone

By Polly Schaafsma

The landscapes of the Rio Grande Valley and neighboring regions harbor a rich legacy of petroglyphs and paintings from the Puebloan past. Focus will be on the history of this imagery dating from ca. 1050 through 1600 CE. The symbols and metaphors that are pictured in the rock art pertain to Puebloan cosmology and a worldview, both distinctive to the Southwest as well as to farming people through a much wider area.

Hands across the Canyons of Northern Arizona and Southern Utah

 by Dr. Lawrence L. Loendorf

 In keeping with the theme of the congress, Lawrence Loendorf’s presentation will focus on painted handprints in the canyon country of northern Arizona and southern Utah. Much of the presentation will be based on research Loendorf completed in Canyon de Chelly where he found hundreds of human handprints in a dazzling array of colors. Many of these handprint sites display other colorful paintings that help explain why the handprints were placed on the canyon walls. One set of these handprints was left by Basketmaker people more than 1500 years ago. Many of these are associated with adobe and rock structures or granaries built against the canyon walls to hold corn and other garden products. Most of these colorful handprints are thought to have been left by women who were responsible for filling and accessing the products in the storage features. Other handprints are at trailhead sites where people entered and exited the canyons. This group is less colorful and more diverse in size suggesting both males and females left them. The ones near granaries were likely left as prayers for protection or the stored products or in opening the structures they may represent offerings of thanks that the food has been protected in much the same manner that Christians offer a prayer of thanks for the food they are about to eat at meal times. There may also have been some personal identification of which granaries belonged to which families. The more diverse handprints at trailheads are probably related to the worldwide practice of offering a small prayer at shrines along trails. The handprints are associated with prayers for safety on an upcoming journey or thanks for a successful trip out of the canyons. It is clear that handprints on canyon walls are a tangible way for an individual to associate with the power that is found within the rock. In the ideology of the former canyon dwellers, and especially in the Pueblo worldview, the power flowed through the rocks to surface in rockshelters and freshwater springs. Placing one’s hand and leaving a print on the rock was a way to offer tribute to that power source.

IMAGES FROM LIVING STONE: RUPESTRIAN SCULPTURE OF ANCIENT MESOMERICA

 by:  Dr. Karl Taube

 The study of ancient Mesomerican sculpture strongly focuses on the monuments at the centers of Mesoamerican sites, these typically being free standing objects, including stelae and altars. However, there is also a remarkable corpus of sculpture carved into boulders, cliffs, and outcrops of the surrounding natural landscape. Rather than being only sporadic efforts by individuals, many of these are clearly state sponsored efforts, equal in quality to the finest work known appearing with public architecture in the center of ancient Mesoamerican cities. Clearly, such sculpture on natural rock features denotes them as special places of pilgrimage and ritual. Indeed, many such locals are at springs or known places of ancestral importance and the source of life-giving powers. Three primary cultures where such rock art is found will be the focus here: the early Olmec, the Classic Maya, and the contact period Aztec.
