A beautiful tale about how human beings came to learn and develop their arts, language and mathematics and the ability to settle all over the world—to remake the world. A journey that made us human. Inspired by the ancient rock art of Africa, Sally Mallam illustrates this journey by rearranging and coloring “digital collages” of these original images, recorded in the early to mid-20th century. The end of the book lists websites and books that may interest readers and a map that shows many of the countries where this ancient art was found.
