what i'm puzzled about, is why these pictures are considered "mysterious".
it's not as if there were no precidents when it comes to landscape drawings.
there are thousands.
why make a mystery out of something that isn't?
people have been drawing pictures on any available surface since time immemorial.
just because we don't know why (specifically-you can't put your modern mindset onto ancient graffiti), it doesn't mean they were exclusively meant for the gods, does it?
there's F-A-R too much emphasis placed on religion when it comes to ancient cultures, because we're viewing it through a 20c mindset.
only able to be viewed from the sky my ass.
clues to water?
it makes more sense than [insert woowoo theory here] "gods".
these people were the same as us, they enjoyed art for art's sake.
why invoke gods?!
because it makes for a better story.
which is s#!t.
