August 28, 2007 ARH Near East, Stone Age Descriptive view, twisted perspective, composite view Lasceau--- image deep inside a well shaft (isolated)- rhinoceros, wounded man…. We see a man depicted, it seems to be telling a story, subjective, who is involved in the narrative? Do we think the same artist did it? No, outlines are different; guy went hunting for bison, he speared it, it disemboweled it, and after injured the man; the artist tries to give us a sense of drama; attempt of perspective (man laying down); attempt at ground line to establish space; what is the function of the narrative itself? Did the artist see it happen (historical depiction)? Man has beak; maybe it was a mask; he could be in a tribe; bird on stick becomes symbol of power later (Roman imperial times) Jericho map--- Judea, Samaria Neolithic Age: 9,000-8,000 BC - domestaction of animals - development of agriculture and livestock as a food source - larger art - begin to use fixed homes or permanent dwellings - cluster them in villages - oldest known villages found bordering tigress and euphrades river
