Rock Art in Israel - Book

The new book explores the connection of Negev Desert Rock Art to Myth and Astronomy. It traces the Negev Desert pre-history by deciphering the pre-historic art as influenced by the ancient civilization of Egypt and Sumer.

The deciphering sheds new light on the ancient’s spiritual world especially its connection to ancient astronomy. It illuminates how early man envisioned Creation, invented the first Calendar, and expressed his desire to reach Paradise. After 8,000 years of silence, we finally hear the faint voice of Negev Desert's ancient civilization. Rock art is not art imitating life; it is a visual record of religious beliefs practiced long ago and not an expression of daily life.

The general approach and subjects chosen are relevant to rock art throughout the world. The findings in this book are original and presented now for the first time with much care for their integrity. Deciphering of supposedly simple rock art requires knowledge of many regional subjects such as Archeology, Astronomy, Mythology, History, and Religion,  which presented here for clarity.

The book contains 5 chapters and 147 figures. It includes Mythology, Astronomy, Archeology, and Deciphering.

The book is available online.
