Rock Art in Israel - Book

The book presents interpretations of rock art from the Negev Desert, Israel. It reconstructs the beliefs of the Negev Desert people as influenced by the ancient cultures of Egypt and Sumer. Its premise is that 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 book sheds light on the ancient beliefs, particularly its relation to ancient astronomy and mythology. It illuminates how early man envisioned Creation, invented the first Calendar, and expressed his desire to reach Paradise. After 6,000 years of silence, we finally hear the faint voice of Negev Desert's ancient civilization. The book covers many topics relevant to rock art deciphering, including Archeology, Astronomy, Mythology, History, and Religion. Examples include:

Astronomy
Hunting
