ZOOMORPHIC FIGURES IN THE POST-PALAEOLITHIC ROCK ART OF FRANCE OR PAST SOCIETIES AS HYBRID COMMUNITIES

Abstract

To study zoomorphic figures in prehistoric graphic representations is to study the relationship between human and non-human animals during Prehistory. The presence of these figures in the system of graphic representations testifies to their essential role as social agents and emphasises the importance of considering non-human animals and the non-human in general when studying and interpreting past societies. We are not only dealing with human societies but with hybrid communities. Engraved or painted animal species and/or types of interactions with human figures are different for each culture or chronological period. Here, the focus is on three Neolithic imageries, the engravings of the Armorican megaliths and of the Bego area and the schematic art from southern France and the western Alps, and one Iron Age imagery from the Maurienne valley, Savoie.
