This catalogue represents not only the photos of the earliest rock images but also of their physical environment: the landscape and the painted shelter.
Assuming that images themselves cannot provide all the necessary information, this project considers with the same importance the context in which they are located. It focuses on the rock shelters, their larger surroundings, ancient water courses and human modification of the landscape or of the rock shelter.
A particular attention is given to the artificial holes in the rock called kettles and cupules, as these man-made carvings may have been created and/or used by the authors of the earliest rock art.
