“Drawing on comprehensive and largely unpublished records of Bushman beliefs which were recorded verbatim during the 1870s as well as on modern research done with the living Kalahari Bushmen. Essentially the work of medicine people or shamans, these striking pieces of art depict trance visions and symbols of supernatural potency enable us to understand previously puzzling issues such as the strange relationships between humans and animals and puzzling geometric patterns.”
