(Yehuda Rotblum wearing the yellow vest) After a career in high tech, I began working as a tour guide in the Negev Desert Israel in 1998, without a clue where it will lead me. The enigmatic Negev Desert rock art attracted my attention thrusting me to research them. Together, with the Negev Desert Rock Art forum, I began this journey with zero knowledge and slowly developed the rock art deciphering methodology and its categories, listed here.
Many hours of traversing the desert gave me a unique understanding of the life played here as manifested by thousands of rock art. 15 years passed until I wrote my first book, Heavenly Art, which unraveled this mystery of Rock Art. Five years later I wrote my second book Rock Art in Israel, a ripe and organized version that cemented the methods for Rock Art decipherment. I found that the ancients had deep-sky knowledge and their ideas extend even to the present time. In the process, I found that it is more difficult to understand the past than the future.
My work is fresh and original with a strong attachment to known regional myths. All the rock art deciphered is anchored with historical roots that prove their authenticity through their connections to mythology or/and astronomy. The many articles, published here, explain the rock art scenes with clarity avoiding long sentences and entangled ideas, as such they validate humbly my decipherment. I share my knowledge openly with you with the hope that it will benefit us all. Share your thoughts with me at email@example.com ..
