Ancient British Rock Art

48 49 The complex mixture of symbols shown here extends the study of rock carvings into an area of greater sophistication in the application and meaning of visual design. The effective minimalism of cup and ring marks, although still visible here, is now accompanied by designs which may have a much more representational root. These could be stars, flowers, leaves and water, but the random arrangements give little clue as to whether the elements are interrelated or simply the outcome of incremental addition. Some of the more representational elements resemble tribal art from Africa or Australia. syMboLs Loughcrew passage grave, Co Meath, EireChris Mansell
