Twyfelfontein or /Ui-//aes

Brief description

One of the largest concentrations of petroglyphs, i.e. rock engravings in Africa. The rock art forms a coherent, extensive and high quality record of ritual practices relating to hunter-gather communities in this part of southern Africa over at least two millennia and, eloquently reflects the links between ritual and economic practices of hunter-gatherers in terms of the value of reliable water sources in nurturing communities on a seasonal basis.

Unesco WHS list ref:  1255
