The abundant and expressive paintings are explored and the author examines the links between the rain and the mythical animals perceived to influence it - the creatures of the rain.

When Animals Were People - Bert Woodhouse

In When Animals Were People: A-Z of animals of Southern Africa as the Bushmen saw and thought them and as the camera sees them today, Bert Woodhouse (H.C. Woodhouse) has combined the Bushmen folklore about animals and their pictorial records on the rocks with photographs of actual animals for comparison. In doing so, he has drawn upon his collection of some 30 000 slides accumulated over more than twenty-five years of pursuing a hobby which brings together his interest in mountain-walking, archaeology, anthropology, art and photography.
