Hi,


This is my (only) larger summer landscape/travel presentation, many pictures. Two or three parts are planned so far.

Today: The setting. Some information and background texts

Here and there in the landscape of Bohuslän there are flat rock carvings. They are considered to be a part of the "world heritage" (Well, what isn´t?)

The carvings on the large flat rocks may look "primitive" (what´s that? - must be a better word) or better "simplified"

We may then fresh up our internal and storage memory and remember that thousands of years ago there were no Remington type writers, nor were there any Word processors or advanced GUIs (Graphical User Interface)

Come on. Welcome on board. Let´s go, ragga steady.


/T

I'm glad you are posting these. It looks as though the rocks were carved then pigment used?

The cavities(?) are nowadays filled with some kind of paint, to make it more visible. It´s a nice feeling when you move your hands over the surface.

Whether or not the carvings originally were filled with pigment, I don´t think anybody really knows. If I come across some information on that, I´ll pass it over
