Rock Art in the Old World is an invaluable documentation of what is probably the first manifestation of the creative urge of man. For the first time rock art of very broad geographical regions covering the continents of Africa, Asia and Europe have been dealt within one book. Little known traditions such as the panorama of Chinese art and that of the former Soviet Union have been studied. Samples of rock art identified only recently have been described.
