The collection of rockart engraving presented here are painted interpretations of inspiring rockart from Mount Karkom, Negev desert of Israel. The central motif was copied directly from the rockart and the background and colors were added to enhance the picture to fit what the original artist meant.
The painting turned out to be very useful for the process of rockart interpretation. Each small detail was examined and I learned from it is that each incision was important. Each strike in the rock followed a thought, and it was intentional. The accuracy and relative sizes of image are symbolic only and each minor detail is of vital importance for the whole scene. For the ancients, the rockart inscription was a form of holy writing, a way to communicate with their gods. The names chosen for the paintings capture the essence of the rockart engraving as it was deciphered.
